Ok, I know what you're thinking.
This coleslaw LOOKS like ALL the other coleslaws out there. So what makes it so special? What makes the flavor different?
The "not so secret" secret ingredient is a dash of fish sauce. Now, I know what you're thinking, but I pinky promise you your coleslaw won't taste fishy AT ALL.
Fish sauce is a staple in Asian cuisine and adds salt and umami. What's umami? It's that deep, woodsy flavor you find in miso soup, pho, mushrooms dishes and some curries.
This dish shows the magic that can happen when you add one little ingredient. Just one that takes the flavor of a dish in a whole different direction.
