Buying a head of napa cabbage is a commitment for two meals. Asian Slaw from Everyday Food Light was our way of using up the leftover head from the previous night's dinner. Yes, this version is light, so you won't find any ramen noodles or slivered almonds. What I loved about this was how fresh it tasted with jalapeno, scallions, shredded carrot and a heavy-handed addition of cilantro (which totally brings this slaw together).
This side is simple enough to put together and is actually a nice light side for summer when you are sick of indulgent sour cream-drenched salads. But in the end, it's just another tasty option I doubt we'll ever make again.
