Coleslaw is a classic side dish but not everyone is a fan of the creamy classic. Try our twist when you switch up the flavors with this Asian-inspired recipe and be sure to include our Spicy Thai Peanut from the Sarah's Savor Snacks collection. Coleslaw has never been tastier with the addition of this blend of cashews, peanuts and oats with its kick of spice.
- 1 bag Sarah's Savor Snacks - Spicy Thai Peanut (gluten free, non GMO, vegan)
- 1/2 red bell pepper
- 2 cloves garlic
- 3 tablespoons ginger root (about 3" piece)
- 1 large bag cole slaw mix
Other optional tasty additions
- snow peas
- bean sprouts
- green onions
- bok choi
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 5 Tablespoons soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons grapes oil
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1/4 cup white vinegar
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
Julienne the red bell pepper.
Peel the ginger root.
Added tip: freeze the remainder of the ginger root for future use.
Finely grate the 3" of ginger root on a micro plan grater. If you don't have a micro plane grater, mince the ginger root finely.
Do the same with the 2 cloves of garlic.
Use 2 tablespoons of the olive oil to sauté the garlic and the ginger. This will bring out the natural sugars in the ingredients and caramelize them slightly. Don't over cook the garlic or it will become bitter.
Allow to cool completely.
Add the rest of the wet ingredients to a mason jar.
Add the garlic and ginger.
Close the jar tightly and shake vigorously until the brown sugar has dissolved and the dressing has combined completely.
Toss together the coleslaw, red peppers and Sarah's Savory Snacks, Spicy Thai Peanut.
When it is time to serve, toss the dressing over the coleslaw.
Enjoy this crunchy, spicy Asian-inspired side dish at your next get-together or serve it with dinner.
