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. i’m not sure i have the patience to turn carrots and zukes into such delicate, lovely shreds, but the dish sounds great!

  2. I have a julienne peeler that I’ve never used, so i’m glad i finally have a use! I love asian flavors and cool, crisp salads- this is totally something i’d love.

  3. 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…

  4. You did good. I would eat this like a small piglet. Gorgeous the way the colors come out. I love the flavor of Asian salads!

  5. Well, that looks just terrific! I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a julienne peeler.

  6. 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.

  7. What a great crunchy slaw! Such a great fresh and tasty side.
