Asian Coleslaw

This is a recipe that my sister made for us in Switzerland. As soon as I took a bite, I knew that my husband would LOVE it! Joe is a huge peanut butter sauce fan. I really do not care for traditional coleslaw, but this is fantastic. My hubby said that sunflower seeds would have been a great addition, and you know what- he is right! I will add them next time for sure. My sister served this side dish with some delicious spicy chicken burgers. I served it over a maple-soy marinated steak.

3 c. coleslaw mix
1 c. shredded carrots
1 c. shredded purple cabbage

Combine dressing ingredients and whisk. Combine slaw ingredients. Toss in dressing right before serving.
