Coleslaw rejigged as Vietnamese slaw

I do love creamy coleslaw. But that dressing takes what could be healthy into tasty fattening calorie land. 

This is my take on making it healthier yet edible.  I’m not keen on naked raw cabbage. 

Buy or make the slaw. No dressing… Just the type near bagged lettuces.

The dressing:

Mix 1 tablespoon each of:

Fish sauce

Lime juice

1/2 tablespoon of soy sauce

Drizzle over your slaw.  Eat immediately. 

A typical Asian dressing also adds sugar and sometimes sesame oil.  

Sugar adds taste but calories. Sesame adds fat and calories. 

If you like it well enough without Ryder sugar enjoy as is. Maybe taste test your dressing prior to use? I’m not sure how a sweetener would work as I don’t use them.
