Asian Sandwich Slaw and Giveaway Winners!

Some people like potato chips in their sandwiches. I’m a fan of coleslaw in mine. Nothing like big pile of creamy coleslaw on a spicy pastrami sandwich.
Unless of course, it’s a tangy Asian coleslaw on a light fish or meat sandwich. This isn’t a salad to serve on its own. This is a slaw specifically engineered for a sandwich. It is not so spiced that it takes away from the main event, yet provides the perfect sour tang to bring brightness to a meal between bread. And it couldn’t be easier to make:
Asian Sandwich Slaw

rice vinegar, to cover vegetables
sugar, to taste
1 onion, thinly sliced
juice and zest of 1 lime
3 carrots, grated
1 English cucumber, sliced into thin strips

 1) Combine all the ingredients. Let it sit for half an hour, then taste to see if you need more sugar. Um…that’s it. Really…that’s it. No salt, no pepper, no cooking. The rice vinegar effectively cooks the vegetables, rendering the onions sweet and mellow and turning the carrots savory and tangy.

 Make sure you strain the slaw before you serve it on your burgers or sandwich.

Oh, you want to know what kind of sandwiches? Well, you will have to wait until tomorrow to get the recipe for these Faux Saigon Subs. They are meaty, fragrant, and benefit from the refreshing cool tang of this simple salad. 
I can’t give away all my secrets at once.

  1. […] the room temperature steak on one side and some fresh or pickled vegetables on the other […]

  2. […] fat, and it just melts beautifully into the juicy meat. Piled high on a potato roll, topped with coleslaw, I can’t think of anything more […]
