Recipe Scene: Asian Coleslaw

When I’m making this coleslaw I often just use whatever veggies I ah vein the crisper, so long as it includes wombok and carrot. The dressing is what really brings it all together, along with the garnishes. I usually make a double batch of it as we all love it so much.


½ wombok, shredded

3 carrots, grated

6 sticks of celery, diced

½ green apple, grated

1 red capsicum, diced

1 cucumber, cut in strips

4 spring onions, sliced

½ bunch coriander


Small piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated

2 tablespoons peanut oil

1 tablespoon fish sauce

1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon brown sugar

2 limes, juiced


Chopped peanuts

Sliced red chili


Fried shallots


  1. Place all salad ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Place all dressing ingredients in a screw top jar and shake well until combined, then pour over the salad. Mix well.
  3. Top with all or some of the suggested topping ingredients.
