Peanut Butter Slaw

I love slaw as long as it isn’t drowning in a sea of mayonnaise.  This version with a peanut butter base is spicy, crunchy and sweet.  Pick up a bag of pre-shredded cabbage to save you some time and  add any veggies you like (sugar snap peas or broccoli would be delish.)  Toss in some grilled chicken to make it a meal!

What to buy (serves 5-6):

  • 5-6  cups napa cabbage and red cabbage,  thinly shredded
  • 1 carrot, peeled and grated

for the dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha, add more to taste
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger paste
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Peanut Butter Slaw: (serves 4-5)

What to do:

  • whisk together dressing ingredients until combined and pour over slaw
  • allow salad to chill in the fridge for 15 minutes before serving so the flavors can combine
  • optional: sprinkle with chopped peanuts, sesame seeds and chopped avocados before serving
