Quick Asian Cole Slaw Recipe Is Crispy, Crunchy, Sweet & Savory

I love salads that combine sweet and savory, crispy and crunchy – the more variety in taste and texture the better! Here’s a quick Asian slaw salad recipe that combines all four of those taste and textures.

You can shred your own vegetables or you can take the easy road and just buy a package of broccoli slaw. The toasted noodles and almonds give it that crunchiness. This easy salad would be good with dried cranberries, too, to add even more sweetness.

Cuisine: Asian
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 10 



  • 1 bag (16 ounces) broccoli slaw with broccoli, cabbage and carrots OR 2 cups purple cabbage, shredded fine, 1 cup grated carrot and 1/2 a medium head green cabbage, shredded fine (about 4 to 5 cups)



Here’s how to make it:

  1. Dump broccoli slaw (or separate slaw ingredients) into a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. Combine dressing ingredients in a salad dressing shaker or small glass jar. Shake well until ingredients are well mixed. Set aside.
  3. To make topping, melt butter in a skillet and add noodles, almonds, sunflower seeds and brown sugar. Stir and mix until lightly toasted. Don’t burn! Let cool and set aside.
  4. Just before serving, shake the dressing again, pour it over the veggies and toss. Add crunchy topping and mix into the slaw.

Note: The topping won’t stay crunchy in the refrigerator, so unless you’ll eat the whole salad at one meal, serve the topping on the side. The slaw mixture itself keeps well in the refrigerator.

I have a recipe similar that I bought the ingredients for to make at Easter, but ended up not. Making it this week. Mine uses beef ramen. Love your variation!
