Instructions Checklist
  • Pour the coleslaw mix into a large bowl. Pour in the lime juice, rice vinegar, fish sauce, sesame oil, honey, and peanuts. Stir until well blended. If you have a bowl with a lid, put the lid on and shake thoroughly. Taste, and season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for a few hours, stirring or shaking occasionally, to allow the flavors to blend before serving.

I'm not usually a fan of sweet salads but this one was pretty good. Still next time I think I halve the honey replacing the missing half with an equal amount of soy sauce to reduce the sweetness and increase the "Asianness" of the flavor. Read More

Wow! I've already made this 3 times and just got the recipe less than 2 weeks ago! Family wiped out whole bowl the first night and asked I make again for the next night! Very easy - once you have those ingredients on hand it is so fast to make. I took a whole jar of peanuts and chopped them (food processor) and put them back in the jar to keep handy! I put a little Cilantro in too one time and that was tasty too! A great dish! Read More

THis was good. I cut back on the honey added sesame seeds instead of peanuts like one reviewer suggested and I added a bit of ginger. I will be making this again. Read More

Brought this to a party and it went over REALLY well. I added 2 tablespoons of a chili garlic sauce (from the Chinese food area of the grocery store) and instead of salt/pepper - added some Mrs. Dash - about a heaping teaspoon. This is a keeper recipe - and VERY easy as well. Read More

This was a great tasting easy to make salad. I ended up making it twice in one weekend - at the request of my sons. The only changes I made were to sprinkle toasted sesame seeds over the salad instead of using the peanuts (I'm not a big peanut fan) and the second time I made it I used a less lime juice. Read More

Made this exactly according to the recipe and I just didn't think it was that good. I love thai food and I made it as an accompaniment to a thai dinner. After taste testing it I decided not to inflict it on my boyfriend. The fish sauce makes it taste vaguely funky and the flavors don't sparkle and pop the way I think they should in a Thai salad.

I made this recipe exactly as written except that I substituted an equal amount of shredded green and red cabbage and shredded carrot for the coleslaw mix to save money. The coleslaw was okay not my favorite and I likely won't make it again but it was good enough to round out dinner. Read More
