Asian Slaw

In this recipe, Amy Sotis, a local nutritionist, shows us how to make a delicious Asian Slaw recipe. Peanut Butter as a base for a dressing may sound strange, but it adds a perfect balance of sweet and savory to the dish. This recipe has plenty of healthy substitutes, lowering calories, sugars, and sodium. Adding chicken to the recipe is optional, but it is recommended to add in those important proteins to your diet. An easy tip is whenever you cook chicken breast for any recipe, make additional chicken breast that you can shred and save in the fridge to easily add into any meal, especially this salad.
