This salad was easy to throw together, and I enjoyed the spicy, nutty flavor, but the canned bamboo shoots (which, thankfully, were overlooked the first time i made it) completely ruined it for me; it tasted as if someone had urinated in the salad, and i couldn't choke it down...very good without the bamboo shoots though.
Hot & Sour Slaw
From EatingWell: July/August 2008
This slaw, a combination of cabbage, red bell pepper, scallions and bamboo shoots, is tossed with a dressing full of the classic flavors of Chinese hot-and-sour soup. Serve with grilled pork tenderloin and a glass of Riesling.
5 Reviews for Hot & Sour Slaw
I like this recipe a lot and make it often. I usually use a bag of slaw mix or a bag of broccoli slaw to help save on time.
Always a crowd pleaser!
This is so tasty and refreshing with good crunch and just a hint of heat. I liked this so much I had it again for breakfast today and it was even better. I would not add sugar but like most Eating Well recipes, you have to correct the seasoning. I am always looking for light and refreshing dishes suitable for days of abstinence and this is perfect.
I found the recipe quite bland. I used perhaps 3x the amount of vinegar, toasted sesame oil & ginger to give it some flavor.
I made this cabbage and it was pretty good. I bought broccoli slaw instead of cutting cabbage myself. And, I added a little sugar, because without it, the slaw isn't good. But it is a bit spicy and I plan to make it again really soon.
