  • 1/2 head green cabbage shredded or sliced thin
  • 1/4 head red cabbage shredded or sliced thin
  • 1 red bell pepper seeded and sliced into thin strips
  • 1/2 cup toasted sliced almonds
  • 1 small bunch fresh cilantro hard stems removed
  • 1 small bunch fresh mint leaves stems removed

Peanut Dressing

  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp sriracha
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/2 in piece ginger peeled and grated
  • 1 garlic clove grated
  • 1 lime zest and juice
  • Few table spoons water to thin out sauce if needed


  • In a large bowl, add together the shredded cabbages, sliced bell pepper, toasted almonds and fresh herbs. Set aside.
  • To make the salad dressing, in a food processor or blender, add together all the dressings ingredients and blend until smooth.
  • You may need to add a bit of water to thin out the consistency. Taste for seasoning and adjust.
  • Spoon dressing over salad and toss to combine. Add about 1/2 of the dressing first and if you need more add as much you'd like.
  • Serve with lime wedges for added freshness.


This Asian cabbage slaw would be delicious with the addition of cubed avocado, pineapple or shredded chicken for added protein.
