Coleslaw is a summer staple at every summer picnic and gathering.   Some are tangy, some are sweet and some have the peppery bite of horseradish.

But this slaw has exotic Asian flavors that are bold and delicious.  The best part, though, is there is no mayo in the recipe, so it’s perfect for summer.

This salad couldn’t be easier to make.  I use a bagged coleslaw mix and add a few extra veggies, but you could easily chop your own cabbage and add whatever veggies you like.  It’s flexible like that.

The sauce has a deep soy flavor accented with ginger and garlic.  And, it comes together in a snap.  This sauce will make anything taste great!

I love it served along side my Grilled Sticky Chicken Skewers or my Asian BBQ Chicken.

    This was AWESOME! I did use things I had around like hot honey so I left out the hot sauce and I had this peanut butter from Hawaii with coconut. I also bought some breaded chicken tenders from the deli and added sliced almonds. I can’t wait to impress people with this recipe.
