You won't have tried slaw like this Asian slaw before. It's lower fat too, as it's nearly half mayonnaise and half Greek yogurt, which means it won't weigh you down. It's also got loads of delicious Asian flavours in it from the white cabbage, rice wine vinegar, mirin rice wine and toasted sesame oil, which means it's totally different from the sort of coleslaw you can buy in supermarkets or that you might normally make at home. It's worth giving a go and you'll soon find this will become your go-to recipe!
