"This is not for the weak stomach; this spicy slaw is a nice addition when you want to add a side dish with an Asian flair. Refrigerate salad for at least an hour, but 24 is better to allow flavors to set. Serve by itself or on an Asian salad. Also makes a good spring roll filling.

Sensational dressing! I adore spicy food and this hit the spot. Spicy-hot, tangy and slightly sweet; perfect side dish, but it would be fantastic on a hamburger, burrito, soft tacos, wraps, noodle soup and more. I used cabbage and serrano peppers. Will definitely make again to share! Thanks JWM!
Great, bold flavor! I omitted the jalapeno (I'm pregnant and can't tolerate super spicy right now) and subbed a few shakes of red pepper flakes, and I used fresh ginger because I don't have ground, and baby bok choy because it's what I had from the CSA. I used half the dressing, and that was plenty. I think the dressing really makes this salad--it's tangy and mustardy, but not overpowering. This would also be great with cabbage instead of bok choy. A definite keeper!
Sorry, I didn't much care for this recipe, but I must admit that I didn't add as many peppers as stated (I admit it - I didn't add any cherry peppers, and only 1 jalapeno). As written, it was just way too spicy for me, but I love bok choy, so I decided to try the recipe anyway, thinking it would still be good. It turned out extremely vinegary and bitter. I'm sure it is great as written though.
I have a ton of bok choy from the local farm, we can't eat mayo so we were missing out on Cole slaw... this is good. Only used four jalapenos tho. There is way too much dressing so I strained it after I realized it.
This is really good! I used four jalapenos and that was too much heat for me, so will use three next time. I am also going to marinate some steak in the dressing and then stir fry it. I think this recipe will make a great marinade!
I really liked this recipe. However, I used twice as much bok choy and none of the cherry peppers or cucumbers. It may be a little too tangy for my taste, but a great dressing, none-the-less.
This is a fantastic tasting, zingy salad!
I cut 1 star for it being too hot for the average person and for the "shredding of cucumbers". P.I.T.A.!
First time I made this, I followed recipe exactly, but with just two minor adjustments based on previous reviews:
1)I only had 20 minutes for it to sit/marinade before serving time.
2)I poured out about a third of the "vinaigrette" before serving-other reviews said it was too soggy (and made better for leftovers, too!).
Five Jalapeno's is very tasty-hot, and we loved it, but is not for anyone that can't tolerate hot/spicy. I suggest reduce the Jalapeno's to 2 or 4, depending on the company you're serving.
The ginger at the end is a nice unique flavor with this salad. Don't forget it.
