Asian Cucumber and Carrot Slaw

 Asian Cucumber and Carrot Slaw

I made an Asian-inspired meal this evening for dinner. I served lettuce wraps and paired them with this tasty slaw that I found on Kitchen Confidante. This Asian salad is quick to throw together, beautiful to look at, and tastes so delicious. We all loved the crisp veggie “noodles” with the tangy dressing This slaw is fun to eat, healthy, and delicious – you can’t beat that!

  1. What a refreshing salad, Pam:) I’m with Grace on this one. I’m not sure I’d have the patience to make the salad look so “purty.” I’ll just have to pop over by your house, lol…

    Thank you so much for sharing, Pam…

  2. This looks great. I make a similar dressing for my Asian slaw, but I take the shortcut of using a bag of coleslaw mix, lol.

    Hi, from your photos it looks like there are garlic cloves in this recipe from the ones in the small cup/bowl, but no mention of garlic in the recipe. Is there an error in the recipe or what? i’d like to know before I try the recipe. Thank you.

    1. Norma,

      You are correct! Thank you for letting me know. I’ve corrected the recipe to include 2 cloves of minced garlic. Thanks again!
