Creamy Asian Slaw

Creamy Asian Slaw

Many of us have goals to live healthier, more vibrant lives. We know salads are healthy, yet some of us have come to rely on traditional coleslaw as a staple for our meals. While this is good, at times it is lacking that “Wow” factor. It’s quite easy to jazz up this classic side dish in a new healthy way. It feels so good to serve delicious recipes to family and friends.
