Asian Slaw – delicious Asian slaw recipe with soy sesame dressing. It’s easy, low calories and refreshing. Healthy salad for the entire family!
I made my Asian slaw with soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, cashew nuts and other Asian ingredients. The dressing is savory, light, aromatic, with a tint of heat from the Japanese spices. There is no mayonnaise, cream, so you can feel good about making it as often as you want. Plus, I just personally think that Asian slaw is a lot more appetizing.
This salad is perfect for Spring, as you can make a big serving of it for your spring party. You can also bring this for an outdoor picnic or cookout. If you want to add some protein to it, just make a simple grilled or pan-seared chicken breast and add them on top of the salad. Either way, you can’t go wrong!
