Super Slaw

June 22, 2010

Part of our Fathers Day feast, this recipe comes passed down from a friend of my sister’s mother-in-law and it was definitely a big hit paired with the steak sandwiches we served.  The colorful Asian-inspired slaw with a peanut butter based dressing was a surprising twist to the usual mayo based cole slaw we all know and love. It pairs well with just about any barbeque dish and the dressing can be prepared ahead of schedule, which makes it a perfect side dish for any gathering.

Super Slaw


  • 6 tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 6 tbsp. vegetable (or grapeseed) oil
  • 5 tbsp. creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp. brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tbsp. minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 tbsp. minced garlic


  • 5 cups thinly sliced green cabbage
  • 2 cups  thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 1 large yellow bell pepper, cut in strips
  • 1 large red bell pepper, cut in strips
  • 6 green onions, cut in strips
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and cut into strips
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Mix salad and toss in dressing 30 minutes before serving. Chopped peanuts can also be sprinkled on top for added texture and presentation.

    This sounds great! I was actually looking for a slaw recipe to use this weekend, to put on top of some BBQ pulled pork sliders, so I think I will try this!

    Hi Felicia, I made this over the weekend for a baby shower and it was a hit! I made it to top my sliders, but people also ate it by itself and they all loved it. I’ll be directing them to your blog for the recipe…. thanks!
