Asian Slaw with Sesame Ginger Dressing

Everyone loves an easy recipe and this one for Asian Slaw is definitely that! Use prepackaged coleslaw and you have already cut the prep time by half! The dressing is delicious and other than some mincing of both garlic and ginger, there is really not much to do except measure and shake! This recipe is on our repeat list here in the Wolman kitchen, an I am sure it will be on yours as well. Add salmon or chicken or tofu and you have yourself a complete meal winner!
