Asian Chicken Slaw

Here’s the deal with this Asian Chicken Slaw… It’s awesome. Epic. So good you’ll want to lick the bottom of the bowl just to make sure that every last bit of goodness has been consumed and none is left to waste. And you can make it vegetarian style or with chicken.

It’s colorful, packed with flavor and it’s been making an appearance the past few week like whoa. I can’t be stopped.

PLUS… totally figure friendly! Which is really wonderful considering that we’re heading into football food / appetizer season and that’s not quite so figure friendly So this Asian Chicken Slaw is kinda my best friend right now and I can 1000% guarantee you that you’re going to love it.

  1. I eat almost the same salad for lunches all. the. time. I love that you added peanut butter to the dressing! I always add chopped peanuts on top but I like that you killed two birds with one stone. YUM! PS: Brazil. I can’t even. I’m so cold it hurts. ENJOY!

  2. I can’t eat peanut butter in anything but a salad dressing, and I know I am going to love this one!!! All that cabbage is so wonderful, with such a great fusion of flavors.

  3. This was amazing! We loved this dish. It has great flavor and crunch. It was awesome for lunch the next day, too. Thanks for another fab recipe, Gaby!
