1package(16 ounces) coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots)
2cupsshredded cooked chicken breast
4mediumgreen onions, thinly sliced
⅓cupchopped fresh cilantro
Chopped peanuts for topping (optional)
⅓cupfresh lime juice
⅓cuplow-sodium soy sauce
⅓cupnatural peanut butter
1tablespoonSriracha hot sauce
1garlic clove, minced
1tablespoonminced fresh ginger
In a large bowl, toss together the coleslaw mix, chicken, green onions and cilantro.
Make the dressing by whisking together the lime juice, soy sauce, peanut butter, honey, Sriracha chili sauce, minced garlic, minced ginger and sesame oil until well blended.
Pour the dressing over the salad mixture and toss until well coated. Can be refrigerated for 1 hour before serving.
Divide the slaw evenly between 6 plates or large bowls.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one day. I've found that these leftovers don't keep for too long once dressed. The slaw will retain a slight crunch, but will also begin to turn soggy and limp after one day.
This slaw can be made up to an hour ahead and chilled in the refrigerator before serving. Shredded coleslaw mixes can be found with the bagged lettuces in most well-stocked grocery stores.Alternatively, you can always shred your own green cabbage, purple cabbage, carrots, etc.Possible additions include: avocado slices, chopped peanuts, sliced almonds, sliced celery, sliced radishes, and shredded or sliced jicama.Be sure to adjust your WW Points accordingly when making any ingredient substitutions or additions.Serving size: 2 cupsClick here to see your WW Points for this recipe and track it in the WW app or site.8*PointsPlus (Old plan)
