I made bo ssam (Korean pork roast) last weekend and served it with this slaw: It was delicious! Light, fresh, and perfect with the pork.

If you have the gourmet live app. . . Just last week the new issue featured a Vietnamese coleslaw recipe along with the Asian pulled pork recipe.

This "Asian Inspired Napa Cabbage Salad" is excellent. It looks like a lot of ingredients for the dressing, but other than the ginger and garlic, it mostly involves pouring from bottles. ;o)

No specific recipe, but I make one with cabbage, sliced mange tout/sugar snaps, sliced apple, some lime juice... And whatever else is on hand that i fancy... you could add in a bit of finely chopped red chilli for zing and colour, and maybe a dash of sesame oil for some added flavour...

I love this one --
It has clean flavors as counterpoint to the rich and greasy pork.
More choices on the site --

You could do a sweet and spicy, process spicy red peppers with rice vinegar, garlic and ginger, cook that down in a simple syrup, cool and toss with fine thinly sliced bok choy or napa or other cabbage. Or a sweet sour sesame, rice vinegar, sesame oil, a few dashes of shoyu, a bit of sugar, sprinkle with sea salt sesame seeds (or black sesame seeds for a great visual impact). I think what is important is that you try to hit as many taste groups as you can, sweet, spicy, sour, savory, and aim for variety in texture.
