Crunchy Asian Slaw

Notice a theme here? Once I started on one Asian-inspired recipe, it kicked off a stream of consciousness where that was all I could think about because (1) I love Asian food, and (2) Asian-style cooking uses flavorful, healthy ingredients.

This is a go-to recipe for me whenever I need to make a vegetable side dish. It's simple, the flavors work well together, and it's a different spin on the average cole slaw.

Crunchy Asian Slaw


1 package purple cabbage
1 cups shredded carrots
2 scallions, chopped
1/2 cup shelled edamame (soybeans)

2 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp honey
pinch of pepper
1/2 tsp dijon mustard
dash of hot sauce

1/2 cup chow mein noodles

  1. Toss cabbage, carrots, scallions and edamame in a large bowl.
  2. Blend soy sauce, vinegar, oil, honey, pepper, mustard and hot sauce.
  3. Pour dressing over slaw veggies and toss to coat. Allow to sit at least 1 hour before serving (overnight is even better).
  4. Garnish with noodles just before serving.
The cost:
cabbage: 1.99
carrots: 1.99
scallions: .15
edamame: 1.99
noodles: 2.39

Grand total: $8.51; serves 6-8 as a side
