What is Asian Slaw?
Nowadays, everyone is more health-conscious than they used to be. There is no denying that the traditional creamy coleslaw chilled to perfection is a crowd pleaser, but I can guarantee you that my Asian slaw is equally tantalizing. Plus, it’s healthy, refreshing, and low in calories.
Ingredients for Asian Coleslaw
- Soy sauce
- Rice vinegar
- Sesame oil
- Cashew nuts
- Apple cider vinegar
- Coleslaw mix
The dressing is savory, light, aromatic, with a tint of heat from the Japanese spices.
There is no mayonnaise or cream, so you can feel good about making it as often as you want. Plus, I just personally think that Asian coleslaw is a lot more appetizing.
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!
