lovely! the dressing is really nice with the salad itself (don't try tasting it before you've put it on the vegetables though!). Used some chilli sauce instead of the fresh chilli, and took the water out of some cucumber instead of bean sprouts. Definitely one to do again. Had it with a barbeque, alongside the warm potato salad with Caesar dressing (also v. nice) and a green salad. Yum!

I love this carrot slaw and have shared the recipe many times. I will sometimes cheat and use bagged coleslaw along with some chopped coriander and the dressing. The dressing is sooo good, I'll do whatever it takes to eat it as often as possible!
