And the Oscar Goes to...Asian Cabbage Slaw

Poor coleslaw, always plays a forgettable supporting role next to the leading lady. But this side is tasty enough to take center stage at your next cookout. Its light and crispy, and the Siracha adds quite a kick.

Asian Cabbage Slaw

1 bag of Shredded cabbage
2 carrots, julienned
1 cucumber, julienned
4 green onions
A bunch of cilantro

2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp lime juice
15 drops fish sauce
1 bottle rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil
Siracha, about 1 tbsp or to taste
½ tsp coriander
Salt to taste

Mix all of the slaw ingredients together in large bowl. Whisk all dressing ingredients together in separate bowl. Pour over slaw. Let marinate in refrigerator.
