This simple Asian style coleslaw has a lovely light flavor with a bit of crunch. This Asian style coleslaw goes well with my Asian-inspired pulled pork sliders. It’s also fantastic on its own.

This dish is light, healthy, has a zing of flavor, and those crunchy bits really tie it all together. The rice wine and sesame oil add just the right touch to make it a unique coleslaw. If you’re looking for something unique to please a crowd, this is it!

These days, grocery stores have made it incredibly simple to make coleslaw, specially Asian style coleslaw. You can either go straight to the pre-cut lettuce section and grab a bag, or you can shred it yourself.

Instead of getting cabbage and starting from scratch, It’s just so simple to get the bag because it includes red cabbage and carrots. They now come in a variety of flavors and frequently include dressing!

Whatever you choose, skip the bottled dressing for this one and gather those ingredients instead. I’ll admit that I didn’t have any rice wine on hand and had to go out and get some.

I try not to keep ramen packets or other processed foods in my house. To put this together, I used a short but specific shopping list.

Slaw is an abbreviation for coleslaw, a side dish or salad that always includes cabbage and occasionally other shredded vegetables. Some slaws are dressed with vinaigrette, while others are dressed with a creamy or mayonnaise-based dressing.

What is the name of the Asian style coleslaw?
This is a fantastic fresh, crunchy Asian salad that I call Asian Slaw because it contains shredded cabbage and carrot, similar to traditional Coleslaw. This oriental salad is enhanced by fresh herbs and an Asian Dressing infused with Thai flavors. Delicious AND nutritious!

Salad can be refrigerated for 3-4 days. Simply place it in an airtight container in the fridge. The wonton strips will soften, but they will still taste delicious. Leftovers will keep in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
