Asian Slaw with Peanut Dressing

March 12, 2014


Author Notes: This slaw is great on everything, from burgers to quinoa, and way healthier than mayo-based American slaw, which I'm not a huge fan of. I make the dressing ahead of time and put it on salads at least twice a week. While the dressing stays the same, I usually make the slaw with pretty much anything I have in my fridge at the time! alyson mance

Slaw

  • 1/4 cabbage, shredded

Dressing

  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter

  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
