Hot Hot Hot… Slaw – Episode 56

Hot-Napa-Slaw4Sometimes it’s easiest to come up with a main dish. But, what about a side or two?! It takes practice, effort, and sometimes help from a book like The Flavor Bible to pair foods well.

Yes, I think it would be totally acceptable to have a Roasted Chicken with nothing more than a baguette and some good olive oil for drizzling (with some salt, pepper, and a drizzle of Pomegranate Balsamic Vinegar). But, also fun would be that same chicken with some Roasted Brussels Sprouts with a Cider Vinegar Glaze, a beautiful pot of Braised Beans, or perhaps some crunchy Roasted Green Beans with Bacon, Almonds, and Lemon.




About a month ago I posted the recipes for Crispy Dijon Chicken Thighs and Hot Napa Slaw that I’d made for dinner. It was a made up on the spot, I really hope this works, kinda dinner. And it did.

Since we’ve gotten a lot of napa cabbage, from Abundant Harvest Organics, over the last little while, I thought it might be nice to share another way to prepare it. It’s quick, and so simple. We really enjoyed it. And, after filming, I had a really hard time not eating the whole dish. I hope you enjoy it too!
