This light and crunchy slaw makes a great accompaniment to spicy grilled chicken, meat skewers, or fried tofu. Sprinkle toasted sesame seeds on top of individual servings, or black sesame seeds for a dramatic color contrast. This salad gets better the longer it sits in the refrigerator, making it an ideal food to make-ahead with a friend in anticipation of a weekend barbeque.
