Tis the season of holiday parties!  Here is a delicious and quick appetizer to impress your guests! Colorful and crunchy Thai Peanut Slaw in Crispy Cups!

The original recipe can be found here.  I slightly modified the slaw dressing and added edamame for more color, antioxidants and protein!  The slaw is vegan however, it is difficult to find vegan won ton wrappers.  If you can’t find them and want to try making your own try making your own! A recipe can be found here.

We served the crispy won ton cups on the side of the slaw allowing guests to make their own.  You can fill the cups and serve on a plate, but be mindful of how long they will sit.  If left out too long the cups will become soggy!
