How to Make Kimchi Slaw
A fun vinaigrette can turn any dish into something unexpected and special. You'll want to make a double batch of this kimchi vinaigrette and slather it on everything.
This tangy kimchi vinaigrette brings nice heat and lightness to the classic mayo-based coleslaw. You can also use it as a green salad dressing, drizzle it over roasted chicken, or even use it as a marinade for steak. Spoon it over scrambled eggs, or stir some into your next tomato sauce for lasagna or spaghetti. Make a double batch since it will keep for two weeks—and start experimenting!
