Cook’s Note – Asian Coleslaw in Wonton Cups:
- To make this recipe ahead of time, make the wonton cups and keep them in an airtight storage container (like this one). Make the dressing and keep it covered in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to serve, simply mix the Thai Peanut Dressing with the slaw, spoon it into the wonton cups, and serve!
- This Asian Coleslaw goes great with my Chicken in Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce.

- ASSEMBLE: Fill wonton cups with salad mixture, and top with green onions, peanuts and sesame seeds.
