For the Salad

  • 14 oz. cole slaw mix
  • 1 medium bell pepper
  • cup chopped scallions
  • cup chopped cilantro
  • sesame seed and roasted peanuts, to garnish

For the Dressing

  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. grapeseed oil
  • 2 tbsp. peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 tsp. sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. maple syrup
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp. grated ginger


  • Place the coleslaw mix, sliced bell pepper, chopped scallions, and cilantro into a mixing bowl.
  • Prepare the dressing by mixing all of the dressing ingredients together in a small mason jar. Shake to combine.
  • Pour the dressing over the salad and mix well.
  • Transfer the Asian slaw into a serving bowl, and then garnish with sesame seeds and peanuts. Serve.




  • Substitute garnishes. If you’d like to try different garnishes, you could also use wonton strips, different nuts (like almonds or walnuts), or add fruit (such as diced apples or cranberries).
  • Create your own dressing. This Asian dressing complements the flavors of this slaw, but if you have your own favorite, then add that. Whether it’s store bought or something you make yourself, you can try different dressings on this slaw.
  • Add some protein. Instead of serving this as a side, you can make this a full-on meal by adding some protein-packed tofu, chicken, steamed fish, or edamame. This will make it more satisfying and a great light lunch or dinner.
