Spicy Asian Slaw with Honey-Roasted Peanuts


It’s officially salad season, and I love preparing a salad to have as the main course on a summer evening.  Mr. Right loves a good salad, too, and loves it when a salad is the entree.  This spicy asian slaw with honey-roasted peanuts is perfect as a main course with the addition of chicken, shrimp, or salmon but it also makes a perfect side dish.  Since it does not contain mayonnaise, it would be the perfect salad to transport to a summer picnic or pot-luck meal with your family or friends.  This recipe is from Kroger Mymagazine, which is a free recipe/coupon book they send out periodically.

When Jordan and Little Miss were visiting, we ate this delicious salad with grilled salmon, and it was the perfect summer meal.   I also took it to a pot-luck summer party, and everyone there loved it, too.  We hope you give it a try.


Take care.
