Peanut & Wasabi Broccoli-Slaw

No sugar, no salt, no mayo and nothing artificial.  You've just got to try this!

You know that feeling after spending all winter long bitching it's cold, dark and dreary outside and then one day, you wake up to birds chirping andsunny warm weather?!  Yes my friends, it's finally flip-flop season, and with that, a few summery dishes of course.  So let's start with cole-slaw.  But not just any cole-slaw, Peanut & Wasabi Broccoli-Slaw.  Oh, yum!

Peanut-Wasabi Broccoli-Slaw

I used broccoli slaw instead of your plain old regular slaw because the flavors of this sauce are a bit strong, so I needed something sturdy like broccoli to stand up to it, and boy did it turn out good!  If you're not into the whole spicy thing, then just omit the wasabi paste and seeds.  This peanut sauce is actually my original recipe, just with the addition to these two ingredients, so it will taste great with or without it.  I also recommend adding the sauce a little at a time to the slaw in case you like a lot of sauce or just enough to cover each piece.  (I personally like a little extra, that way I can add more if it runs out too quickly).

  1. Combine all ingredients of sauce then slowly mix slaw with sauce to desired consistency.

Mmmm this looks sauceome (sry)?

I wonder if mirin could be used in place of some sugar and vinegar?
