Chinese Slaw

In our home, we really enjoy Asian flavors in our food.  This crunchy slaw goes great with just about any Asian dish.  Of course, one can make their own Asian style vinaigrette to complement the slaw, but Trader Joe's has a really inexpensive dressing that I like to use in this slaw.  The crunchy peanuts and noodles give additional texture to this dish.  Just make sure to add the dressing just before serving, or the peanuts and noodles will get soggy.  

1 Napa cabbage, finely chopped
1/2 of red cabbage, finely chopped
1 carrot, shredded
1/4 c. scallions, chopped
1/4 c. peanuts, chopped
1 tbs. sesame seeds
1 c. Asian Vinaigrette (I use Trader Joe's Sesame Soy Ginger vinaigrette)
1 c. crunchy chow mien noodles

Toss cabbage, carrots and scallions together.  Just before serving mix in dressing.  Toss in Peanuts and crunchy chow mien.  Top with sesame seeds.
