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.

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.

I also am not a fan of canned

I also am not a fan of canned bamboo shoots so I substituted sliced water chestnuts. Gave it a nice additional crunch

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!

Very tasty vegan slaw

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.

Colorful and versatile

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.
