Crunch Salad

Spicy and crunchy - this salad is SO good! I could literally eat the dressing/sauce with a spoon. It can be adjusted based on spice and flavor preferences. The only cooking required for this dish is cooking the rice, everything else is hassle free. I prefer to buy pre-packaged coleslaw mix instead of shredding cabbage and carrots by hand.

This meal can be made fully vegan by substituting honey for maple syrup, or omitting a sweetener from the dressing altogether. I think tofu would be a great addition to this next time I make it!
