This coleslaw is different that the garden-variety mayo version. It has very little fat and a very complex flavor.

Really good and satisfying. I tried to make this recipe according to the directions, then realized I didn't buy the red peppers so subbed carrots, which were good, but I think the recipe as written would be even better. Still, it was a 5 star recipe. Use natural peanut butter if you can-it really is easier to work with and tastes more like peanuts.Read More

Wonderful! Made this for a gathering this past Saturday and everyone went nuts for it. I, too, used the natural peanut butter. I also used aged tamari soy sauce which has much more flavor than the standard supermarket brands. This was served with sliced pork tenderloin and was the perfect accompanyment. Will make this one again and again. Also, followed everyone's advice and made this the morning of my event instead of an hour before. The longer it sits the better!! Thanks for a great recipe!
Wow! This is so good....I made this but used a bag of coleslaw mix, about 4 cups. Cut the dressing ingredients in half. I didn't hve the bell peppers. I used a handful of match stick carrots, no cilantro or sesame seeds (personal taste). My friend came of to taste test it with me and we both loved it. I sent 2/3's of it home with her because my husband won't eat cabbage. She called later to tell me her mother loved it too. Now I don't have enough fo myself. No prob though, it is so easy to make. I'll just make another half batch and keep it all to myself! Thank you so much Dawn, for the new addition to my reipe box. This will be going with me to the next pot luck dinner. I'm sure there will be lots of guests wanting the recipe.
I have made this fou times in two weeks from the cabbage in my garden. It is so good as a side dish for pork dishes and is also a nice change from the standard coleslaw recipes.
I usually make the Angie's dad's coleslaw on this site, but this is a lovely change. Nice asian flavors.This was very tasty. I did not have chives or sesame seeds. I added 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil and a tablespoon of splenda & a couple of teaspoons of lime juice. I hope it holds up for tomorrow. if it does, I will give it 5 stars;)
I am a huge fan of both coleslaw and peanut butter but this slaw was not one of my favourites. It was too peanutty and just didn't have the crisp freshness of traditional mayo coleslaw. I'm still on the hunt for a more nutritious coleslaw!
This was absolutely delicious and pretty easy to make. I added more hot sauce and omitted the salt.
I was looking for a cabbage recipe to use up the cabbage I had. I did a few things differently due to personal taste (cilantro tastes like soap to me so I didn't use it, I don't like things too salty so I omitted the 1/2 tsp. of salt), but otherwise followed the recipe. Tasty! I almost felt like the sauce was missing something, which is why I gave it four stars instead of five. But I would make it again as-is!
I was really excited about this recipe since I like all the ingredients it calls for, but boy was this disappointing. I had some fresh cilantro that I did not realize had gone bad so I omitted this from the original recipe. Maybe that's what it was missing? It just tasted really really salty and very boring. My husband and I even tried it the next day to see if the flavors had developed but it was still not very good. I have no plans to try this one again but if you want to go for it, I would strongly advise tasting before adding any salt.
If I could give this 500 stars I would. I despise mayo in any way, shape or form so when I came across this recipe I just had to try it. Hubs and I love it. LOVE IT. It goes especially well alongside some spicy ribs. I don't use cilantro as I'm not a fan, but do everything else as written. I've tossed in other shredded veggies as well to use them up: broccoli, carrots, cauliflower and it still is great. THANK YOU Dawn for this recipe.
The dressing on this is fabulous. It gets even better on the next day. I did change the ingredients in the salad because of necessity, but I followed the dressing recipe exactly and it was perfect. It reminded me of thai food, and it was a great change from regular mayo-based coleslaw.
Although I didn't follow the recipe exactly, I'm still sure it's worth 5 stars and even more. I hate mayo based coleslaw, and love peanut sauces. So this was perfect. I needed a salad dressing using rice vinegar and peanut butter and found this. I didn't have cilantro, chives or red bell peppers, so I actually used pico de gallo and it worked wonderfully. I used the sauce on baby spinach and topped with the sesame seeds. I will definately make this again, next time using cabbage. But I think I will keep using pico de gallo to avoid the work of chopping the veggies!
I really liked this recipe and thought it was a great alternative to the mayo-based coleslaws. I took it to a family gathering of about 20 people and most of them turned their noses up at it so I'll be making it just for myself in the future! NOTE: I, too, upgraded this to 5 stars after letting it sit for the flavors to blend. I think it takes a bit to get used to for people who are expecting a more traditional coleslaw flavor, but this one is highly addicting! I've made it several times since finding the recipe. Thanks!
I used green peppers, not red ones. The flavors combine nicely! Great taste!
If you don't like peanut butter or cilantro, you should not make this recipe. It tasted pretty good, but you couldn't eat a lot of it.
This was fantastic! I cut back on the cilantro due to personal preferences and added some fresh ginger. I also used a combination of red and green cabbage - maybe 1 part red to 2 parts green - and it was a very pretty dish!
I didnt care for this, sorry
Have not tried yet, but it sounds DELICIOUS. Saved it here, and plugged it into my recipe thing at Sparkpeople for future nutrition logging.
**Pot Luck Success** We had a Tahiti/Polynesian theme potluck at work and this cole slaw was well received. I was so impressed with the flavors and I don't even like peppers...but gobbled them up in this recipe. One person already asked for the recipe! Thanks Dawn! ~~best of all I now have a recipe for a fantastic Asian Peanut spicy dressing. WOW!
Very tasty... I added some diced up boneless skinless chicken breast and made a meal out of it by adding fruit salad on the side. It didn't quite feed our family of 7, though, even with adding the 4 chicken breasts.
This recipe has a great flavor. I usually use broccoli slaw instead of cabbage though. Super good.
Quite good. Company enjoyed it. I dumped the general ingredients in without measuring a whole lot. Hard to mess this one up. A nice change from mayo-based coleslaw, and Weight Watchers Friendly! (1 point per serving)
I was skeptical about this recipe, but so good and different! Needed to add more cabbage & celery, as the sauce is a pretty strong flavour. Delish!!
Excellent flavors...exotic combination! That being said I modified it a little. I doubled the hot sauce, used reduced sodium soy sauce, only used one red bell pepper and 5 cups vs 8 cups of shredded cabbage. Delightful :-) I'll definitely make this one again!
what a wonderful alternative to traditional coleslaw. Very delicous!
very flavorful. i used sriracha sauce in the place of tabasco and didn't have rice vinegar. it still tastes amazing.
(I used a Chinese rice-based cooking wine I've had forever, red onion instead of the chives, and left out the red bell peppers. I also used natural peanut butter which is not as thick and unmanageable.) This was great, and my husband loved it as he loves most savory things. I was actually looking for something with a sweetish tang to it, and when I actually made it realized there wasn't anything sweet in it, but it was still delicious, and I love finding recipes with so few calories and fat in them that are still so tasty. I think you could adapt the ingredients with a little brown sugar and honey for a sweeter dressing.
This recipe is delicious. I do not usually like cabbage or traditional coleslaws, but I will eat this. We recently served the coleslaw at a dinner party, and no one could get enough. Outstanding.
I originally gave this 3 stars, but am now upgrading it to 4 after the coleslaw had about 2 hours to hang out. Note: I did not have chives, red pepper, or sesame seeds and I added the juice of one lime and about 1/2 tsp. honey to perk it up a little. I used a natural peanut butter that doesn' have any added sugar, so that may have made a difference in the taste/texture. My hubby said he'd like to have this again. I am happy to find a lower fat/higher protein coleslaw recipe!
We though this was ok but didn't taste good until I added some sugar... Not bad, just not what I was looking for!
The vinegar taste was too strong. We all took a few bites and then moved on to the other dishes- never to return.
This was good but I wasn't "wow"ed by it. I needed a side dish for a Polynesian / Tiki themed party and this fit the bill. For overall taste and everyday menus, though, think I'll stick to traditional coleslaw.
This is a great alternative to the heavy mayonnaise-coleslaw. I used green bell peppers instead of red (which was also good) and I toasted the sesame seeds before I mixed them in.
I'm trying to eat more salads and this coleslaw was great!! Love the unusual flavors :)
This was really good but next time I think I'll throw in some pineapple or mandarine oranges to give it more polynesian flair!
Turned out great, though I prefer my slaws to be a little stronger in flavor.
This coleslaw turned out really well with my Thai themed dinner and had to add a little water to thin out the mixture. I only had champaign vinegar but it worked out fine. Overall, a great alternative to the average mayo slaw.
Super easy to prepare and even better tasting knowing it's healthier than normal slaw! :-) I used a bag of preshredded coleslaw and it was that much faster! Will make again.
This was delicious! I also used natural peanut butter, so I added approx. 1 tbsp of honey to increase the sweetness. I also left out the chives, but I didn't really miss them. Finally, I used a bagged cabbage mix that contained carrots; they really added to the coleslaw's texture, flavor, and color.
I doubled the wet ingredients so I would have lots left when I made fish tacos the next day for lunch using this colesalaw..yummy! I made this recipe using Sriracha hot sauce and natural peanut butter,but had no red peppers so I subbed grated carrot in its place; was GREAT with no salt added either **One thing of note is that it NEEDS a few hours to hang out in the fridge, covered with a solid lid NOT plastic (due to the fresh garlic) for the flavors to enhance and COME TO LIFE.
Nice recipe. Perhaps even better on the second day. I did not add the salt and it was perfect; I think it would have been too salty with both the salt & the soy sauce.
not too shabby... with a unique taste and a nice kick :)
DELICIOUS! I did not have peppers or chives. I used minced white onion, shredded carrot and bean shoots. Next time I will add a can of black beans to make it a hearty lunch!
Tasty!! Made exactly as directed.
Didn't care for the combination of flavors.I can appreciate a coleslaw with reduced fat but I will stick with a mayonaise based slaw.
I also use Bragg's liquid aminos instead of soy sauce. So much less sodium--same great taste. I added some crushed pineapple. How can you have a polynesian flavor without pineapple? It turned out very well
This was tasty. I didn't have any red bell peppers so I used red pepper flakes and added soem shredded carrots for cruch. I used a powedered peanut butter product to cut the calories and fat back. I think next time I'll add some broccoli slaw to this as well as more red pepper flakes and some salt.
Oh my goodness! This is delicious. My whole family loved it!
So far it is delicious, did not even refrigerate yet. Used carrots, small amount of onion, increased to 1/2 tsp. hot dauce
We didn't care for the flavor of this salad.
This was a great change to the standard creamy coleslaw. No salt needed, due to the Bragg's Liquid amino (soy sauce) that i used. I also used no salt organic peanut butter. Also, substituted what i had on hand, which was white wine vinegar, but it still was great!
This is addictive! Definitely leave out the salt. I use all natural crunchy peanut butter and don't bother with the sesame seeds.
I absolutely loved this recipe and it doesn't have any mayo in it. I've made several times. Didn't change a thing.
me and my boyfriend loved this slaw! I was never a fan of traditional coleslaw so I decided to give this one a shot. The flavors go great together, and I'm going to make it again for a family reunion! I followed the recipe to a T.
Made it for our Fourth of July party; everyone loved it! I will definitely make it again. I'm going to add grilled chicken for a light summer main dish.
