Asian Slaw Recipe
This asian slaw recipe is made with the chinese style chow mein noodles and lots of vegetables, nuts, seeds and fruit.
Combining that with a tangy dressing makes for a wholesome, filling salad.
The can of chop suey vegetables is an easy way to add bean sprouts, baby corn, bamboo shoots and water chestnuts if you don't want to buy them all separately.
The noodles will become soft with time but the seeds and nuts will keep the salad crunchy.
The dressing has a little oriental flair to it which comes from the sesame oil and soya sauce.
You can substitute honey, stavia, or any other sweetener if you would prefer not to use sugar.
1/2 cup shredded onion
1/2 cup sunflower seed
1/2 cup almonds
1 can chop suey vegetables
1 can mandarine oranges
6 handfuls chinese style chow mein noodles
1-2 cloves minced garlic(optional)
1/2 cup salad oil
1/4 cup sushi or rice vinegar
2 tbsp. sesame oil
2 tbsp. soya sauce
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp celery seed
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
Shred cabbage, carrots and onion using a grater or mandolin slicer and add to a large bowl.
For the mandarin oranges drain the juice from the can and set aside. If the dressing needs more liquid to coat the whole salad you can add some of this.
Add the oranges,vegetables, nuts and seeds to the bowl, mix together in a large bowl and set aside.
In a small bowl mix together dressing ingredients and mix using a whisk or electric hand mixer. Pour over salad, mix together and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
If there is not quite enough dressing just add a little of the juice from the oranges.
