Can you use other types of cabbage for Asian slaw?
This recipe is perfect for making a crunchy Napa cabbage slaw. You can use one of the other main varieties of cabbage—green, red or savoy—or use pre-shredded bagged coleslaw mix
if your grocery store is out of Chinese cabbage
. Each substitution will affect the flavor and texture of the Asian slaw, though, so seek out Napa cabbage for the most authentic version.
What else can you add to Asian slaw?
Asian slaw is a super versatile coleslaw recipe
. You can make it your own by adding a few additional ingredients for color, flavor and texture. Fresh ginger will give the slaw a warming, pungent taste, while toasted sesame seeds will accentuate the sesame oil used in the original recipe. We also like adding a little soy sauce for salty, savory flavor and chili oil or chili crisp for extra heat.
How do you store Asian slaw?
Asian slaw is good in the refrigerator for up to 4 days when stored in an airtight container. The slaw will become softer the longer it sits in the fridge, so plan to serve it right away if you want to create the crunchiest slaw.—Lindsay Mattison, Taste of Home Contributing Writer
