Spicy Asian Slaw
You too can be ahead of the culinary curve with this spicy Asian slaw.  Just the thing to amaze friends and family when that next pool party or barbecue rolls around!

1 3-inch piece of fresh ginger, grated fine
1/2-cup creamy style peanut butter
1/2-cup rice wine vinegar
1 Tbl. soy sauce
2 key limes, juiced
2 Tbl. sesame oil
1 head Napa cabbage, sliced thin
1 yellow bell pepper, julienne fine
1 red bell pepper, julienne fine
 2 Serrano chiles, minced fine
1 large carrot, grated fine with a peeler
3 green onions, cut on the bias, all of white part and half of the green
2 Tbl. chopped cilantro
2 Tbl. chopped mint
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
½ teaspoon Black Sesame seeds

In a small bowl, or food processor whisk together the ginger, peanut butter, vinegar, soy sauce, limejuice, and the sesame oil. In a large salad serving bowl, combine all other ingredients except sesame seeds and then toss in the dressing. Sprinkle sesame seeds over salad.
Reserve a little of the dressing for rice noodles and fried pork and you’ve got a spicy Asian feast on your hands!
