One of my favorite, cheap takeout meals as a graduatestudent was sesame noodles – which is really a peanut butter based sauce. Now that I’m watchingmy carbs more closely, I get my peanut sauce fix by making a peanut salad dressing and serving it with lots of fresh veggies.There’s something aboutcreamy peanut salad dressing that brings back fond memories. Making your own peanut salad dressing is so easy–there’s no reason to buy store bought, plus you know exactly what you’re putting into it.
I created this Asian Slaw with Spicy Peanut Salad Dressing recipe using Silk® Unsweetened Cashewmilk, a product I use often in my coffee, and as a creamy dairy-free swap for half and half or heavy creamin lattes and desserts . We have dairy intolerances in our family, so Silk® Unsweetened Cashewmilk offers a great dairy-free option. It’snot onlylactose-free and casein-free, but also cholesterol-free (plant-based), and contains no artificial colors, flavors or preservations. One cup has just 25 calories and 0 grams of sugar, which makes it a wonderful ingredient in creamy recipes like my SpicyPeanut Salad Dressingwhen I’m trying to lighten up recipes.
Don’t you just love how colorful all the vegetables in this Asian Slaw are – after all, we eat with our eyes, right? This Asian Slaw is not only naturally vibrant in color, but it packs lots of textures and flavors into one bowl – sweet and juicy pineapple, crunchy peanuts and cabbage, umami rich soy sauce, fragrant fresh mint and cilantro, and spicy red pepper flakes.
This Asian Slaw and the Peanut Salad Dressing is a great as a side dish or if you want to make it into a main course, just add some firm tofu cubesorshredded chicken.

If you make the salad dressing ahead of time, you may need to add more Cashewmilk to thin it out a bit before tossing with the slaw.
