Spicy Asian Slaw – and our winner!

Spicy Asian Slaw - Vegan, Gluten Free From Canned-Time.com

A perfect mix of spicy, sweet and tang.  Spicy Asian Slaw.

I needed a few side dishes to bring with for our July 4th celebration Thursday and this slaw will brighten up the party for sure.  The slaw is mildly sweet with a touch of ginger (barely a touch) and some healthy stuff like Miso, Broccoli and Red Pepper mixed in.  I made up a jar of Annie’s Oil and Nut-free Berry-Miso Salad Dressing this weekend, (which was just fabulous Annie).  It really got me in the mood for a slightly sweet and spicy dressing for my slaw today.

It balanced the spice in the beans and with such low sugar, you can eat as much as you’d like.

Whether or not you are celebrating Independence Day this week, the Canadian’s Birthday today or you just need a full flavored dinner to make tonight, this one’s a winner for summer meals.

Spicy Asian Slaw
Recipe type: Side or Salad
Cuisine: Asian
  • 1 10 oz. bag of shredded cabbage
  • 1 12 oz. bag of broccoli slaw (or a slaw mix)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 Cup Vegan Salad Dressing ( I used Earth Balance 'Mindful Mayo')
  • 1 Tbs. Tamari
  • 2 tsp. Crystalized Ginger crushed
  • 1 tsp. Celery Seed
  • ¼ Cup Miso
  • 1 Cup Ginger Salad Dressing ( I used Trader Joe's)
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper, diced
  • 1 tsp. Black Pepper
  • 1 Tbs. Black Sesame Seeds (Optional)
  1. Mix together the cabbage and broccoli slaw mixes with the bell pepper.
  2. Stir together all the remaining ingredients with a wisk or blend in a blender until smooth. Taste to adjust pepper and add salt to taste.
  3. Pour the dressing over cabbage mix and stir together to coat.
  4. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. The slaw will have more flavor after 1 day at least. Cover tightly to avoid oxidation of the cabbage.

    Just wanted the let you know the book arrived today. It’s a beautiful book. I’m looking forward to reading through it and trying some of the recipes. The publisher threw in a bonus set of measuring spoons with the cookbook. It’s a nice extra touch. Thanks for hosting.
