- Asian Slaw: Toast the cashews and sesame seeds in a small pan over a low heat until lightly brown, tossing gently and keeping an eye on it so it doesn’t burn. Transfer to a plate to cool completely. Cover and store at room temperature until ready to serve (this can be done ahead of time).
- To make the slaw, combine the cabbage, carrots, corn, coriander, mint and spring onions in a large bowl and evenly mix. Cover and refrigerate until ready to dress and serve.
- To make the dressing, combine all the ingredients together in a small jar and shake to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to dress and serve.
- Place the Asian Slaw on a large serving dish, sprinkle over nuts and seeds and dress with the dressing. Store dressed slaw in an airtight container for up to 24 hours. Non-dressed slaw can be stored up to 5 days. Wonderful for feeding a crowd!
