  5. In a small bowl, add yogurt, lime juice, cilantro and peanuts and mix. Serve as dipping sauce
Notes & Tips:

This is one of those recipes that I thought my kids would take one look at and laugh but because I had them help me and they were freshly fried, they were devoured! Don't leave out the yogurt dipping sauce, it makes the whole dish but feel free to just serve yogurt without the lime, cilantro and peanuts.

This coleslaw is so refreshing! If you can’t find Asian pears, feel free to use regular brown or green crunchy pears or green apples.

Leftover tips for tomorrow’s lunch:

Deconstructed burger salad:
  • There are no real tips for this meal because they are so good as is the next day! The coleslaw will be softer but not mushy. The tuna fritters are amazing room temperature and will be surprisingly still crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside!.
