"This is a delicious, zesty slaw packed with crunch and flavor. It needs to be chilled at least 1 hour before serving."

frozen peas, thawed
finely shredded cabbage
green onion, thinly sliced
white wine vinegar
salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
I'm not a huge fan of coleslaw but I needed a recipe to use up a bag of shredded cabbage I had. I chose this because I thought the peas would add a little extra nutrition for my kids. It was actually pretty good. The recipe did not specify type of mustard to use and I only had yellow, so I used that. Maybe next time I'll try brown. The peanuts added a great crunch and the peas added nice color. (I left the peanuts whole.) I will use this in place of any other coleslaw recipe if the I need to make coleslaw again arises.
It was okay....not enough flavor, maybe more curry next time or hot!
I did use the brocoli slaw for more of a crunch which was nice.
I like the idea of the peanuts and peas. I have added frozen peas (thawed) to salads/slaws before.
I've had this recipe in my file for a long time and never made it. I had a huge head of cabbage in the fridge and looking for a way to use it. I thought I'd try this for a different change of pace. It was delicious. My husband and I both love curry flavor, so this was right up our ally. Here are my changes: add a small tart apple cut into little pieces, use only about 1 cup of peas tops, less salt, toast the peanuts to bring out the flavor. I also added a little fennel seed. My husband and I ate almost the whole batch just the two of us it was so good. I made it again the next night because I still had more cabbage to use up. Brought the leftovers to a neighbor and she called exclaiming how much she liked it. I think it would be great to take to a potluck because it's different. It holds up well too. Still good after a day in the fridge. If you need to thaw peas in a hurry, just put them in a bowl and run hot water over them from the tap. It thaws them out without cooking them. I hope more people try this wonderful recipe.
Great dressing. I used Old-Style Prepared Mustard (with the seeds still in.) Took me all of five minutes to make and turned out to be a great snack.
We really enjoyed this coleslaw. The curry powder added an interesting blend to the dressing. I like that you add the peanuts right before serving as this kept the peanuts nice and crunchy.
We really liked it (including our kids), I was actually kinda surprised. I wanted a "different" slaw and this fit the bill with what I had on hand. Quick, easy, tasty!
Great tasting coleslaw! I will cut down on the dressing next time, but the taste was wonderful, so might just double the peas, cabbage and peanuts. I used raw peanuts in this; there is plenty of salt in the mayonnaise and mustard, so didn't need it in the peanuts. This is so good that I have already made it more than once!
3 1/2 stars... good, different, but i've had better coleslaw
