Crunchy Asian Slaw

There is an absolutely killer Asian slaw recipe floating around the internet; in fact, I’d even guess that many of you have had it.

I’ll admit that I’ve had it, and more than once. It somehow makes an appearance at almost every summer party I attend (and I promise I’m not the one who brings it, lol).

It has tasty things like sesame seeds, almonds, scallions, and soy sauce. After requesting the recipe from a friend, I discovered that it also has pretty generous amounts of butter, oil, sugar, and even ramen noodle seasoning mix. That last ingredient is not only high in sodium, but also has MSG. I was less than thrilled when I realized that the slaw I loved so much didn’t love me back at all.

So yeah, I was done with that.

But I still love a good slaw with Asian flavors.


I probably don’t have to tell you how excited I was when I found a much healthier version of my favorite Asian slaw that still packs a huge punch of flavor, no MSG required . It’s a hit at parties, and still one of the first dishes to disappear from a buffet table…and I feel so much better eating it.

      Hi Joanne, Like I mentioned in the post above, I do not eat MSG either! The beauty of this healthier recipe for the slaw is that it doesn’t use the ramen noodle seasoning mix, so it’s MSG-free! I think you’d like it. ;)

    One just has to look at the photos and know that was something that had to be on the plate soonest . . .I see little sins when compared to the total offered . . .

    the recipe does actually call for using the ramen seasoning packet….any suggestions for leaving it out and still having a yummy slaw?
