Kimchee Slaw

Kimchi Slaw

The chili peppers in this Kimchi Saw make the dish a little spicy, and offer more than your daily dose of vitamin C.  Cabbage and ginger contain antioxidants, and ginger is thought to act as a stimulant and aid digestion, as well.  Your grandmother might like it, but this is not your grandmother’s coleslaw.
