Asian – inspired Slaw with Hoisin Vinaigrette

A twist on slaw in time for Memorial Day cookouts.  I made this for the first time a while back for a cookout, and have made it several times since then. It is a nice change to the usual cookout side dish. Even better, it is super easy to make!

And a good time to check out your local farmer’s market for the veggies!!

ingredients:

1 small red cabbage – thinly sliced

1 small Napa cabbage – thinly sliced

1 med carrot – shredded

1 small yellow squash – shredded

small package of almond slivers

In large bowl, mix all ingredients together. Add vinaigrette and stir to coat.

**Hoisin vinaigrette**

1/3 cup canola oil

3 TBSP rice vinegar

2 TBSP Hoisin

1 TBSP Sesame oil

1 TBSP toasted sesame seeds

Mix all ingredients in cruet, or other  sealable container, shake until thoroughly combined.
