The satay dressing is definitely what makes this slaw so darn good. The combination of the crunchy peanut butter with the crispy vegetables is pretty much a match made in happy-tummy-heaven. And yes, that is totally a place.

This Asian Slaw with Satay Dressing is also a massive hit at BBQs. It makes a BIG bowl so there’s plenty to go around. And add some grilled chicken skewers to the top and you’ll be like a pig in mud. Oooh yeah!

According to Dave (the slaw expert), you should toss the satay dressing through the slaw just before serving so that everything stays nice and crunchy. But to be honest, I’m a huge fan of eating the leftovers of this slaw when all of the flavours have well and truly ‘smooshed’ together… mmmm drool!

PS. I’m going to be out of a job if I keep putting Dave’s recipes on the blog… hmm maybe I’ll just have to make a yummy cake to cement my place here… and then I’ll eat it… but you can all virtually enjoy it too!
