Asian Slaw

I am on a coleslaw roll.  In fact, my children are so tired of coleslaw that they have begged me to stop making it; I made coleslaw with dinner every night last week and just can’t get enough crunchy cabbage.

One afternoon last week, I put out a query on Twitter (my favorite e-venue to hang out these days, I’m over there quite a bit chatting with people real time) to find out people’s favorite coleslaw recipes.  Jenn Cuisine responded with this recipe and I was hooked from the moment I saw it.  My recipe is based on Jenn Cuisine’s.  In fact, I hadn’t thought about making a “peanut” style sauce for my coleslaw and I have to say, this really hits the spot –and again, no agave and hopefully, healthy enough for all you health nuts out there!

As I mentioned, I am having a lot of fun with Twitter.  What’s your favorite form of social networking these days?  TwitterFacebook?  Or something else that I haven’t even heard of yet?
