This side-dish salad tastes great with burgers or pulled pork sandwiches. Or you can toss the slaw with shredded chicken or chopped cooked ham for a main-dish salad.


  • 4 cups shredded green and/or red cabbage
  • 2 carrots, cut into julienne strips or coarsely shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 3/4 cup bite-size strips green, red, yellow and/or orange sweet pepper
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped radishes
  • 1/4 cup snipped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions (2)
  • Spicy Asian Dressing (recipe below)


  1. In a large bowl, combine cabbage, carrot, sweet pepper, radishes, cilantro, and green onions. Pour the dressing over cabbage mixture. Toss to coat. Cover and chill for 2 to 24 hours before serving. Toss slaw before serving. Makes 6 to 8 side-dish servings.


  • Easy Garden Slaw: Prepare the slaw as directed above, except substitute 5 cups packaged shredded cabbage with carrot (coleslaw mix) for the cabbage and carrot.
