Slightly Asian Slaw

This salad is my version of several recipes for an Asian-type slaw.  It’s very flavorful and goes nicely with any kind of sandwich.  Also, I like the fact that it can be served immediately rather than having to prepare it an hour or two in advance of a meal.

SLIGHTLY ASIAN SLAW

  • 1 Tbsp. creamy peanut butter
  • 2 Tblsp. peanut oil
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • ¼ tsp. Mongolian Fire Oil (opt.)
  • 1 Tblsp. rice vinegar
  • ½ Tblsp. granulated sugar
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 3 green onions, chopped (white and green part)
  • 1/4 cup grated carrots
  • 1 Tblsp. peanuts
  • 1 Tblsp. snipped cilantro

Place peanut butter in a small jar with a lid. Add peanut oil, sesame oil, Mongolian Fire Oil, vinegar and sugar.  Whisk with a fork…

…and then put a lid on the jar and shake vigorously.

In a large bowl, toss the shredded cabbage, onions and carrots together.   Salad can be covered and refrigerated at this point.

When ready to serve, add peanuts, cilantro and dressing.  Toss well.

  1. Wow! This sounds and looks so good! I will have to see if I can get a couple of items on that list as I know my husband would love this too. We love sate which is a kebab with a warm Indonesian peanut sauce on it.

  2. That peanut sauce looks quick and easy. The store bottled dressings always have too much sodium in them. Around here, we love anything with cabbage in it!
