Please adjust all amounts to taste, I used extra chunky Jif peanut butter for this, but really any peanut butter will do. The dressing should be made and chilled a couple hours ahead or even overnight to blend the flavors before using on the salad. This is really good!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a processor or blender process all dressing ingredients, adjust amounts to taste (chill for a minumum of at least 2 hours to blend flavors).
  2. Place all the salad ingredients in a large bowl, including the chopped peanuts; pour the dressing over, toss to combine.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Sprinkle with more peanuts if desired.

I made a few changes - I didn't add any oil and used a sweet onion instead of the green onions and just a bag of cole slaw mix - me and DH liked it but the guests didn't care for it at all. the next time I make it I will use less peanut butter and more chili paste. Thanks for a great recipe.

Just as your other coleslaw recipe posted on this site, this is an all-time winner, all of us loved this recipe, and I used garlic powder instead of fresh garlic, this is delicious, thank Kit.

This is the best Asian-inspired coleslaw I've ever had. I changed nothing except to use only 2T rather than 3T of sugar. I poured the dressing on the salad just before serving and preferred that to the dressed salad after a few hours.
