07 Dec Winter Slaw with Spicy Korean Dressing
This is another great recipe to clean out the fridge of leftover vegetables. Isn’t it satisfying to use up all the food in your fridge? Waste makes no sense and is a big pet peeve. Switch it up and serve this delicious slaw with chicken or shrimp to create a great dinner.
If you’re not a fan of water chestnuts, replace them with peanuts or cashews for that added crunch. The jalapeno is totally optional. If you don’t like the heat or have little ones who may not indulge because of it, just leave it out.
Robyn used kale and spinach but it’s not necessary to use both. She likes to add spinach to everything she can in the winter for the nutrients. Great idea!
