    bag of broccoli slaw

    I have a bag of broccoli slaw that I need to use. I am wanting to have it with pork that has some asian flavors to it. I can post the recipe if needed. I want somthing that is not too strong or heavy tasting since the pork is pretty powerful. Thanks for any ideas.

    I love broccoli slaw - here are a couple recipes we liked...



    Asian Pasta Salad(Adapted from CL)

    2 tablespoons sliced almonds
    2 tablespoons unsalted sunflower seed kernels
    8 ounces wheat Chinese style noodles, crumbled
    1/3 cup white wine vinegar
    1/3 cup less-sodium beef broth
    1/4 cup sugar
    2 tablespoons canola oil
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1 cup chopped green onions
    10 ounces broccoli slaw (original recipe called for Angel hair slaw)

    In a dry skillet over medium heat, add almonds, sunflower seed kernels, and noodles to pan. Cook 3 minutes or until lightly toasted, stirring frequently.

    In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, broth, sugar, oil, salt, and pepper.

    Combine toasted nut mixture, green onions, and slaw in a large bowl. Add vinegar mixture, tossing well to combine. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.



    Spicy Asian Slaw (Adapted from CL)

    1 cup matchstick-cut carrots
    1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
    16 ounce package broccoli slaw
    2 1/2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
    2 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
    2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
    1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    1 tablespoon canola oil
    2 teaspoons sambal oelek
    3 tablespoons chopped dry-roasted peanuts

    In a large bowl, toss together carrots, onions and slaw.

    In a medium bowl, whisk together vinegar, peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, oil and sambal oelek. Pour this mixture over the slaw mixture and toss well to coat. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts before serving.

    I made a variation on this Tyler Florence cole slaw with a bag of broccoli slaw in place of the cabbage, carrots and onion (I have a cabbage aversion, despite being irish ):

    Cole Slaw with Pecans and Spicy Dressing

    1 head napa or savoy cabbage, shredded
    4 carrots, shredded
    2 Granny Smith apples, thinly sliced
    1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
    1 cup pecans, toasted and chopped
    Leaves from 1 bunch fresh mint, for garnish
    Dressing:
    1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1 teaspoon ground chipotle
    3/4 cup mayonnaise
    1 lemon, juiced
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


    Combine the cabbage, carrots, apples, onion, and pecans in a large bowl. Mix well with your hands and set aside.
    In a small bowl, stir together the mustard, sugar, cayenne, cumin, mayonnaise, and lemon juice until blended. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture and toss well to coat. Taste again for seasoning, then mound onto a platter and garnish with mint leaves.

    We love this one...it goes great with pork or chicken.

    SWEET & SOUR SLAW

    (The Good Food Gourmet: Jane Brody)


    7-8 cups (about 1-1/4 pounds) shredded green cabbage

    1/3 cup rice vinegar or cider vinegar
    1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter (smooth also acceptable)
    Red pepper flakes to taste (optional)
    3 Tablespoons brown sugar
    1/2 cup dry roasted, unsalted peanuts, coarsely chopped
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 Tablespoon soy sauce (used low sodium)
    1 teaspoon oriental sesame seed oil


    Place dressing ingredients in blender, and process them on low until well mixed. (Note: I usually just whisk thoroughly in the bottom of the bowl and add the cabbage in.)

    About 1 hour before serving, place the dressing in a large bowl and gradually add all the shredded cabbage tossing well to mix. Stir in red pepper flakes (if you are using them). Cover bowl, chill for 1 hour, tossing it every now and then.
