This Asian-inspired cabbage salad is made with a rainbow-colored ingredients and creamy peanut dressing. It's easy to make in only 15 minutes when you're craving something fresh and bright.



For The Salad:

  • 3 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 3 cups shredded green cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 thinly sliced red pepper
  • 5 chopped green onions
  • ⅓ cup chopped cilantro

For The Peanut Dressing: 

  • ¼ cup smooth peanut butter
  • ¼ cup soy sauce (or Tamari, coconut aminos)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon ginger powder

For The Toppings:

  • ⅓ cup peanuts (or more) for topping
  • Sesame seeds, optional topping


  1. Make the dressing: in a small bowl or jar, stir together the dressing ingredients. Add about 2-3 tablespoons of water, or more, until your dressing reaches your desired thickness. The amount of water you need to add will depend on the type/brand of peanut butter used.
  2. Mix the salad: add all of the salad ingredients to a large bowl: red cabbage, green cabbage, carrots, red pepper, green onions, cilantro.
  3. Serve: drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss to coat. Sprinkle the peanuts and sesame seeds (optional) on top of the salad before serving.
