This Asian slaw, kicked up with creamy peanut butter, is a delightful change from traditional mayo-based slaw recipes. Ready in under an hour, you can cut quite a bit of the prep time by purchasing pre-shredded cabbage, pre-julienned carrots and chopped scallions in your produce section. The spice of the sriracha is a great foil to the sweetness of the peanut butter. The addition of golden raisins to this slaw creates little bursts of additional sweetness in every bite. Serve with grilled fish, such as salmon, or simple cooked chicken breasts or pork tenderloin. The brightly flavoured slaw carries any meal and serves a crowd, making it a great pot-luck dish for summer gatherings.
