You wouldn't think roast beef and coleslaw would necessarily go together, but this recipe proves that it can be a savory and delicious combination that you won't be able to get enough of. The best part is that it takes less than 20 minutes to make, thanks to store-bought dressing and already cooked beef rump roast, and requires just six ingredients. We love how the sesame ginger dressing complements the napa cabbage and carrots, while the roast beef makes this coleslaw hearty and satisfying. It's super easy to put together and doesn't require any pots or pans or stovetop cooking. Serve it as a side dish or appetizer for any picnic, backyard barbecue, or potluck.
