Tricolor Asian Coleslaw

6 servings

This salad would be great with some grilled teriyaki chicken or steak. I slice the cabbage with the 4mm slicer attachment; and shred the carrot and jicama with the grater attachment. My own preference is to slice the bell pepper, onion and Chinese peas by hand into very thin strips. Look for the vinegar, hoisin sauce and chili garlic sauce in the Asian foods section of your supermarket. Tip: Present this festive coleslaw in an attractive wood salad bowl. But not just any wood bowl will do. For tossing and serving salad, the wood must be laminated or treated with a tasteless oil rub. These types of bowls do not absorb or retain food odors and flavors making them ideal for salads.


  • 2 tablespoons oriental sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (not sodium-reduced)
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons chile garlic sauce
  • 1 large garlic clove, quartered
  • 4 cups (packed) thinly sliced cored Napa cabbage (about 3/4 pound)
  • 1 cup grated peeled carrot
  • 1 cup grated peeled jicama
  • 2 ounces (about 20) Chinese peas or snow peas, cut lengthwise into
  • very thin strips
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, cut lengthwise into very thin strips
  • 1/2 cup very thinly sliced red onion
  • Chopped roasted peanuts


Blend first 8 ingredients in mini-processor until smooth. Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper.

Combine all vegetables in large bowl. Add dressing and toss to coat. Let stand at least 2 hours or cover and refrigerate up to 8 hours, tossing occasionally. Sprinkle with peanuts and serve.
