Fresh, zesty and colourful, this easy to make crunchy Asian coleslaw recipe is a perfect picnic salad.
One of our favourites in our arsenal of make-ahead picnic salads that travel well, the Asian take on a classic slaw can add so much versatility to your picnic backpack or hamper.
Taking a healthy break from creamy mayo style dressings as we did with our no mayo broccoli potato salad, this slaw is made with a simple fresh and healthy Asian vinaigrette which makes it one of our favourite summer picnic salads. Full of delicious ginger and sesame flavours, this salad can be made well in advance and will only get better with time.
Switch it up by adding more of your favourite veggies or add some kick with a dash of chilli. Serve this salad as a fresh side to bbq meats such as marinated kebabs. Add cooked shredded meat such as chicken, pork, or slices of smoked duck breast to make it a picnic main or add it to summer sandwiches, wraps or burgers for an Asian twist.
