Add some flair to your slaw game.

Now here’s a cookbook we’re on board with. Keepers, penned by two accomplished home cooks and former food editors, is full of recipes that even the most kitchen-challenged can pull off any old night of the week. Sit down, get comfy and let the pros take you on a tour of tonight’s super-easy dinner recipe. Make this Asian-influenced slaw for a bold twist on the picnic classic.

Credit for this vibrant soy-sesame-and miso flavored slaw goes to Kathy’s friend Michael Dougherty, a kitchen designer with a flair for entertaining and cooking. Serve it with all kinds of dishes, including burgers, fried chicken and grilled steak. Michael suggests making the dressing the night before so the flavors have time to blend. He also uses it as a marinade for meat or fish, first thinning it a bit with some soy sauce and/or mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine).
