Asian Coleslaw

asian coleslaw 1

A rainbow of crunchy vegetables drizzled with a spicy Thai-inspired dressing!

Despite the fact that this salad is pretty much all vegetables (with a few nuts thrown in there) it makes a really satisfying lunch – without the need for meat/cheese/noodles to bulk it out.

Full of crunchy vegetables and drizzled with the most amazing Thai-inspired dressing, this is the dish that’s guaranteed to be gone in a flash at your next BBQ.

I love the dressing, it goes so well with everything, and you can even use it as a marinade for meat and fish. Pour it on your salad, serve it as a dip with a big plate of grilled shrimp or spoon it on salmon fillets before cooking in the oven!

If you are looking to serve this as part of a larger meal, I find it goes really well with barbecued chicken skewers, or baked fish.

It’s a great idea to double up and save some for lunch the next day (if you do this, it’s best to add the dressing right before you eat it).

The perfect alternative to those heavy, creamy coleslaws. This version has twice the flavor whilst being so much healthier!
