The deli counter at my local supermarket sells what it calls Chinese Sesame Slaw. A concoction of Asian-ish ingredients, it is a nice change from the standard Cole slaw (Deli Guy literally told me, "Try it, you'll like it!"). Delicious as it was, oil seemed to be the major ingredient, practically oozing its way out of the sealed plastic container.
With some experimentation, I created a clone, but with significantly less oil. It can be made up to a day in advance, easily doubles, and travels well to a picnic, barbecue or potluck. —ohyoucook
