Spicy Thai Cole Slaw

This is a delicious and quick salad that is fantastic in the summer heat, because the flavors are simple yet intensely flavorful.  Cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, kale and broccoli are anti-cancer powerhouses.

Serves 8

Serving size: 1 cup



1/2 head green cabbage

1/4 head purple cabbage

1 red pepper

1 yellow  or orange pepper

1 carrot julienned or grated

1/2 cup chopped coriander (optional)


Salad Dressing:

1 can coconut milk

1/2 cup peanuts

Juice of 1 lime

2 teaspoons chopped ginger

2 tablespoons of agave nectar

1/2-1 teaspoon Thai green curry

Salt to taste

1/2 teaspoon coriander powder

1/4 cup fresh cilantro or basil


  1. Mix all salad ingredients into a large bowl.
  2. Add all dressing ingredients to a blender and blend until the dressing makes a uniform mixture.  You may want to add more green curry or salt.
  3. Mix the dressing into the vegetables.  This salad is best after chilling for a couple hours – giving the flavors time to combine.
