    Prepare the Ingredients

    Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Mince garlic. Coarsely chop cilantro. Slice chiles into thin rounds, removing membrane (white spiny innards) and seeds, if averse to spice. Thinly slice green onion on a bias (angle).

    Prepare the Slaw

    In a large mixing bowl, add rice vinegar, sesame oil, half of the green onions, garlic, and cilantro. Whisk together to incorporate. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add slaw mix and chiles to taste (reserving some chile slices for garnish). (Chiles can pack a punch, so if you’re spice averse, go easy). Let marinate for 10 minutes before serving.
