Sesame Cashew Slaw
Once again, I must tell you that I am a cole slaw aficionado. Even the often-kinda-icky deli coleslaw. If they bring it, I will eat it. Especially if I eat it with saltine crackers. It's my caviar on toast!
This one is a bit different in that it is served warmed, but not wilted. It was served with that awesome sweet smoked broiled fish demo-ed at Publix last week (do they ever serve a bad dish?!!!....wait 'til you try the cornbread salad I had the other day!!!)
They used a pre-cut coleslaw mix found in the bagged salad section of the produce department (but I have a fabulous cole slaw chopper.....see it at http://www.qvc.com/Genius-10-piece-6-Cup-Mix-Slice-and-Chop-Set.product.K40357.html?sc=K40357-ISRC)....it chops it KFC-style. Anywho.....however you like your coleslaw cut, try this recipe if you, too, are a coleslaw aficionado.
SESAME CASHEW CLAW (approximately 4 servings)
3 oz scallions, finely chopped
3 Tbsp sesame oil
1 Tbsp minced roasted garlic
1 (16 oz) bag shredded 3-color coleslaw mix
3/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 cup citrus rice vinegar
1/2 cup roasted cashews
Chop shallots. Place sesame oil and garlic in large saute pan on medium, cook and stir 1-2 minutes. Add shallots, cook and stir 2-3 minutes or until shallots are soft.
Stir in slaw, salt, and vinegar until evenly coated. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low; cook 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally or until slaw is tender. Stir in cashews. Serve.
