kickin' wasabi coleslaw

So. It was me birfday this past week, and I was craving hamburgers and fries and coleslaw. And since I like my own cooking (OK, a lot), I made my own. Hamburgers in the frying pan, oven-roasted curly fries (Joel spiralized 'em for me) with olive oil and sea salt, and coleslaw. But not just any old slaw! No, ma'am. I wanted to kick it up, celebration style, and so I decided to add wasabi to the dressing. Oh, boy! Deliciousness.

(I based the dressing off this one, but since my middle name is Tweak, I did just that.)

You'll need:

  • cabbage
  • sweet orange pepper
  • nira (Japanese garlic chives)
  • celery
  • carrots
  • 2 T. rice vinegar
  • 1/3 C. mayo
  • 2 t. wasabi paste
  • salt and pepper
  • pinch of sugar
  • 1/4 C. grapeseed oil
Do this: 

Shred and chop the veggies. Mix the dressing. Stir it all together, chill if you must (I mustn't because I was in a hurry), and devour. Get ready for that wasabi kick in your nose.
