👪 Serving sizeThis Asian Coleslaw Salad recipe makes 12 - ½ cup servings. However, if you want to make a smaller portion, then simply click on the servings in the recipe card (it's highlighted in blue), put in the servings you want and the recipe will adjust accordingly.💭How far ahead can this coleslaw be made?Ideally, this coleslaw should be made a few hours before serving so the flavors can meld, but I'm often in a rush and make it just before eating it (and it still tastes great!) Although, you can still make this coleslaw a few days before serving it, the longer it sits, the more limp and watery it becomes.
