What to serve with peanut coleslaw

We like to keep the Asian-flare going by serving this with some garlic ginger chicken. It also goes well beside some coconut milk braised chicken or cashew coconut salmon curry.

Also try this coleslaw with some lemongrass grilled chicken or Thai chicken kebabs. Both are delicious summer recipes!
