Healthy Asian Style Coleslaw
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 my Asian slaw is equally tantalizing, plus it’s healthy, refreshing, and low calories.
Asian Slaw Ingredients
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 coleslaw is a lot more appetizing.
This Asian-style coleslaw 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!
