asasianasiaMy cousin, Meighan, and I now officially have a new obsession.
Asian Meatball Sub
It’s a simple slaw.
Yep. It all started last Saturday when we were preparing for her boyfriend’s “Dirty Thirty Poker” party. We had, oh I don’t know, maybe 10 or 12 appetizers we were making. We just couldn’t get a hold of ourselves. We were out of control.
So, anyway, we made several different kinds of wraps, but one we made with honey ham and angel hair slaw mixed with ginger dressing made us look at eachother and say “That’s the Shit”.
When food makes you cuss, you know it’s good.
So, keeping in mind that I’m slightly food obsessed, I absolutely could not get that taste out of my mind. I didn’t have any ham left, but I did have an obscene amount of ground turkey, so I made meatballs.
And – tada! Before I knew it I had meatball subs.
Yep, with the slaw, but I modified it a little by adding mayo to contrast the meatballs a little. I also added fresh cilantro. Why cilantro, you ask? I have no idea, but I had never put it on a sandwich before. It’s so fresh and delicious- I’m officially a cilantro-on-a-sandwich-fan now.
It’s insane yumminess.
The ginger dressing I used was Makoto. It’s SO GOOD. Seriously. I would drink that stuff by itself out of the bottle. You can find it in the produce section – you know where all the bagged salad and stuff is.
Makoto and I need to have a talk. There has to be crack in that bottle.
Here’s your printable –

YUM! These look delicious and I’m so all about the slaw. Do you think it would work on fish tacos? I have been searching for a slaw for fish tacos forever!
