This Asian Slaw with Ginger Peanut Dressing will be the star of your bbq party!

Summer’s (almost) officially here! And you know what that means? Picnics, BBQs and other fun potlucks you’ll be invited to or hosting! Besides the mandatory – and very welcome – cocktails + burgers you’ll also need sides ideas! This Asian slaw with Ginger Peanut Dressing is ready to be the star of your party.

This gluten-free salad recipe is a delicious Asian twist on the classic coleslaw – we’re keeping the typical combo green cabbage + carrots but also adding other veggies like bell peppers and red peppers.

But what really makes a big difference here is the Asian slaw dressing!

No cream, no mayo for my Asian coleslaw dressing! (Hello, it’s me! I just couldn’t ????). We’re going in a completely different direction using peanut butter and other Thai inspired ingredients like ginger, lime, tamari, coconut oil… all the good things!

This Asian slaw dressing is fresh, it’s healthy and a little bird told me you’d love it. Would you?

And girls, honestly? No need for a summer party to make this Asian slaw … it tastes just as good if it’s just you on a casual weeknight (I test-tasted it with my mom on a Wednesday night haha).

The beauty of this easy salad is that it goes with so many mains! Pork chops, white fish, chicken patties, burgers…you name it.

Enjoy 🙂
