I just made a bbq tonight with hamburgers and hot dogs. I bought a bag of coleslaw mix but instead of the old boring coleslaw, I thought that an Asian version would be great as I am on an Asian kick lately. I found this one at Simply Recipes and I changed it around a bit.
1 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
6 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon toasted (dark) sesame oil
4 Tbsp seasoned rice vinegar (if seasoned rice vinegar is not available, add a teaspoon or two of sugar to regular rice vinegar)
1 16 oz. bag of coleslaw mix
1/4 cup peanuts
Prepare dressing. Place peanut butter in a medium bowl. Add the vegetable oil and the toasted sesame oil and whisk until nicely smooth. Whisk in the seasoned rice vinegar and do a taste test. Depending on how you like your dressing, how salty your peanut butter is, how seasoned your rice vinegar is, you may want to add a little more vinegar, a little more sugar, or a little salt. (Makes about 3/4 cup of dressing.)
In a large bowl, toss the sliced cabbage, grated carrots, and peanuts together, and any other optional ingredients you care to add (like a little chopped cilantro or green onions). Right before serving, mix in the dressing and the peanuts.
