Freshly made coleslaw is a wonderful thing, but every now and then it’s fun to zip up the formula with a burst of lively Asian flavours

Lovely mix of flavours. I used 1 tbsp oil, 1 tsp sugar, left some of the chilli seeds in and added coriander. Quick, easy & delicious!

I love the chilli! I added some fish sauce to give it a more Thai flavour and will add fresh coriander next time.

This is such a lovely change to ordinary coleslaw. All my family and friends loved it. I always make it epecially for barbeques and part of a buffet. Try it, you won't be disappointed.
