Who knew four ingredients could make such a killer slaw? Shredded cabbage, carrots, parsley ( or cilantro ), and green onions...that is IT. The creamy dressing really kicks up the flavor with ingredients like peanut butter, toasted sesame oil, rice vinegar, sriracha, and freshly squeezed lime.
Add some avocado, crispy tempeh, or your protein of choice, and this slaw really can stand alone at the dinner table!
It is also ideal for any of you meal prep gurus out there! It gets even better as it sits and marinates in the dressing.
Can't wait to see your recreations!
