The Healthiest Nuts You Can Eat

This Asian slaw recipe is an excellent example of the summer salad’s potential. It’s jam-packed with contrasting textures and flavors. It’d be a perfect side dish for a cookout, but you can enjoy it as a meal on its own.

Ingredients for Asian Cole Slaw Recipe

This Asian slaw recipe is full of fresh ingredients.

Here’s what you’ll need to make it:

  • Crunchy green and red cabbage. Using a mix of red and green cabbage makes it extra pretty, but it also tastes good with just one variety.
  • Charred peppers. I used a mix of Anaheim and banana peppers, but red bell pepper and poblano would also be nice. They add heat, extra color, and yummy charred flavor.
  • Peaches. Then add a juicy, sweet contrast to the other savory, crisp elements.
  • Seeds or nuts – For crunch and toasty flavor!
  • Green onions, cilantro, mint, and basil. This herb gives the slaw with fresh, surprising flavor, but you can make do with what you have if you don’t have all these herbs. Along with the green onions, just one or two herbs would add plenty of flavors.

For the slaw:

  • 6 to 7 cups shredded red and/or green cabbage
  • A mix of peppers: I used 3 Anaheim and 3 banana peppers, or use 1 red bell and 1 poblano.

Directions for Asian Cole Slaw Recipe

  1. Firstly in a small bowl, make the dressing: whisk together the cashew butter, miso paste, lime juice, sesame oil, and ginger. Whisk in enough water to create a drizzly consistency. Set aside.
  2. In a dry cast-iron skillet over medium heat, char the peppers whole, rotating until the edges have a little char, about 2 minutes per side. Remove. When cool to the touch, slice in half lengthwise, remove the stem, ribbing, and seeds, and slice horizontally into thin strips.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, cilantro, peppers, scallions, basil, chiles, and ¾ of the dressing.
  4. Toss until combined. Add the remaining dressing, if desired, and season to taste with a few pinches of sea salt. Serve topped with the toasted nuts, seeds, and sliced peaches.
