For the slaw

  • 1 bag packaged coleslaw mix
  • 2 cups thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 1 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 bunch green onions chopped
  • ½ cup cilantro chopped

For the dressing

  • 6 Tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
  • 5 Tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 3 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh ginger root peeled and minced
  • 3-4 garlic cloves minced


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the rice vinegar, oils, peanut butter, soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, and garlic.  
  • In a large bowl, combine the coleslaw mix, red cabbage, red bell pepper, carrots, green onions, and cilantro.  Toss with the dressing just before serving.


This cabbage and carrots will soften a bit after at least 30 minutes of chilling in the fridge after mixing with the dressing.  I think this Asian slaw is best when served the day it is made.
