Asian Slaw…

When I was younger i used to hate coleslaw, with all that mayonnaise! This slaw is nothing like that…I’ve added Sesame Seeds, Edamame & Wasabe Paste to give it an Asian twist. The Lemon-Lime dressing replaces the usual Mayo combo, making it a refreshing salad, or you could jazz it up with the second option: Miso Dressing. It’s a great way to eat your cabbage – which is very, very good for you!  My Avocado wasn’t ripe enough, but be sure not to leave it out in yours when you make this. To turn this salad into a meal, I often add Smoked Tofu = Delightful…


1 Large Carrot, julienned

3-4 Napa Cabbage (white) leaves, shredded

handful of shredded Red Cabbage

2 Celery Stalks, julienned

1/4 Onion, julienned

handful of Bean sprouts, halved

1/4 cup Frozen Edamame beans, defrosted

1/2 Avocado, diced
