I love salads, but I really don’t love all the chopping and prep work. It’s time consuming, and messy, and honestly, I’m just to beat to bother. Somedays, you just really need a no-fuss side salad, and this Thai Ginger Peanut Slaw is one of absolute favorites.

First of all, the the convenience of a pre-packaged broccoli slaw mix is such a game changer. It’s great to to have salad base options that is more than just lettuce! Broccoli slaw is packed with vitamins and minerals, and the crunch is just delightful. You simply dump that mix in a bowl, toss in some cilantro, and your good to go.

Now, let’s talk about the ridiculously delicious dressing that is going to rock your slaw. It’s comprised of a handful of ingredients that are whisked together in minutes, and will truly take the flavor of your salad to a whole new level. It’s creamy, nutty, salty, tangy, spicy, and a touch sweet.

And all your tastebuds will be thoroughly satisfied! Today, I’m sharing just the quick and easy version of this salad, but you can easily add more veggies and some protein if you want to bulk it up some, or serve it as a complete meal.

It’s such a fantastic Weight Watchers salad recipe to help keep you in track, without making dishes that are too complicated or bland. I’m telling you, it’s a game changer! Enjoy.

  1. Please fix the print option. For months now, when I try to print all I get is the large photo and the description. No recipe is included in the print. I love your recipes and really want to try them. The ability to print is important to me. Thank you!

    The article says this salad has a touch of sweet. What would that be? I don’t see anything with sweetness in the recipe?
    I like the slaw mixes very much too. To me, they are a better topper than shredded lettuce for tacos, chile, etc., and even as a substitute for zoodles as the base for various saucy dishes. Can’t wait to try this salad.

      The mild sweetness comes from the ginger combined with the peanut butter in the dressing. It is mild though…not as sweet as something you might get in a restaurant.

  3. Can this be made with regular cabbage slaw? I’m not a fan of broccoli slaw. I DO love Thai food!! It is my #1 choice when going out for dinner.

      Absolutely!! I love cabbage slaw too…and the texture is similar to that of the broccoli slaw, so the substitution should work just fine.

  4. When I print this recepie I get 7 pages. All I want is a one page recepie. I think I’ve complained about this before. Please fix your webpage. Thanks
