Easy Asian Slaw Dressing: Cilantro and Carrots and Green Onions Oh My!

Easy Asian Slaw Dressing: Cilantro and Carrots and Green Onions Oh My!

Want a delicious slaw that everyone will be raving about for weeks after that barbecue? Look no further my friend…it has arrived.

I came up with this recipe when thinking of sides for that awesome Bourdain pork sando that I made in my last post. This slaw is refreshing, crunchy, creamy and so deeeeeee-licious. Let’s get right into the nitty gritty of this recipe. I used a lot of the same ingredients that I used in my marinade for the sandwich. If there’s an oil or a vinegar you’re not sure you can substitute in the recipe, just give me a holler. For instance, I’d never used black vinegar before in my life. But guess what? It’s pretty awesome. And I think I’m gonna find more dishes to incorporate it into. It just lends a slight smokiness to the background of the dishes it’s used in. So, if you don’t have it? Just throw your half lit cig into it.

Just kidding.

Don’t do that.

Easy Asian Slaw Dressing:

This recipe makes about 3/4 cup of dressing.

  • 1/3 cup mayo

  • 1 Tablespoon Peanut butter; I like crunchy but use what you haveasian slaw dressing lilchefchic

  • 1 Tablespoon honey

  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil

  • 1 Tablespoon Black Vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon sriracha

  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce; low sodium for me but again…use what you got

  • Salt and pepper to taste.

  • Use a whisk to mix this dressing together in a snap. Set to the side.


  • 2 cups shredded cabbage; I used green and shredded myself or you can use a mix of green and red

  • 2-3 Green onions, green only; chopped

  • 1/2 bunch of cilantro; chopped

  • 2 medium carrots; peeled and shredded. I used my peeler to get my shreds.cabbage shreds lilchefchic


Toss your veg together and gently stir in dressing. Serve immediately..or not.. Honestly, this was delicious and still had some ummph (I mean crunch) three days later. This recipe will make a generous side for 4 servings.

Enjoy! You’ll thank me later.

  • That looks great. Just what you need on these hot Summer days. I’ve not heard of black vinegar either but i’m going to have to see if I can find it here in the UK and give it a go. I like the sound of smoky.

  • Hi Jennifer. Your post made my hungry. Yummy! Will defo try this at home. I really liked the pictures.

  • Hey this sounds great! The peanut butter in there is interesting, I think I have everything to make this, besides the black vinegar :0
    Well I’m gonna try making it skipping the vinegar! lol thanks

    • Hey Lance! Do you have maybe some white vinegar or apple cider vinegar you could use instead? The vinegar in any slaw recipe is what gives it that awesome tang. If not, use water to thin the dressing and some fresh citrus juice to add an acidity that this slaw needs.

  • Just reading it is making me hungry, great recipe and great instruction to follow.
    Keep the recipes coming.
