Most of my recipes are born out of needing to use up something in the fridge, and Peanut Sesame Slaw is no exception. We needed a coleslaw dressing, I wanted one that wasn't mayonnaise, and this was born. It's a simple, tangy peanut sauce that would go well with any crisp, fresh salad. I used black sesame seeds because I enjoy their aesthetic appeal, but you could use regular ones or leave them out altogether. I also like the tang the vinegar gives, but if you prefer a milder version, swap the vinegar with lemon juice.

Peanut Sesame Slaw is a delicious salad made from tangy peanut sauce that would make a great snack or a side dish for weeknight dinner with Herbed Dinner Rolls Recipe or Roasted Vegetable Flan Recipe in Herbed Sauce.
