Gluten Free Asian Slaw

Gluten-Free Asian Slaw Recipe

There’s nothing like a good coleslaw to signal the coming of summer. But, many people are a bit uneasy about serving a mayonnaise-based dish in 90-degree weather. I don’t blame you! Luckily, this Gluten-Free Asian Slaw recipe does not contain mayonnaise, making it safer to transport and serve outdoors during picnics and barbecues.

Another great thing about this slaw is that it comes together quickly. The longest part of this recipe is probably the chopping, though you could speed it up even faster and buy pre-chopped veggies, if desired.

For the dressing, I used seasoned rice vinegar from Marukan. If you use their unseasoned rice vinegar, add a teaspoon or two of sugar. And, if you’re serving this to people with nut allergies, use SunButter to make it nut-free. You can also use peanut butter if nuts are not an issue for you and your guests.

Stay tuned for a recipe that will be posted this week that uses this slaw as a topping – it’s going to be delicious!
