Sesame Ginger Cabbage Slaw

I really seem to be into colorful food lately.  It must be my craving for Spring and warm weather that’s bringing it on.  A group of my friends got together this weekend and I’ll give you one guess who cooked!!  Baked cod was the on the menu served with this slaw as one of the side dishes.  The star of this dish is really the dressing.  This is my go-to coleslaw dish.  I do not like a heavy mayonnaise based cole slaw.  This one is light, crunchy and really flavorful.  It’s super easy to make and it stores nicely in the refrigerator allowing you to make it ahead of time.
