Super Sidekick Sesame Asian Coleslaw

This Super Sidekick Sesame Asian Coleslaw is definitely my go-to slaw with all of the crunchy textures from the cabbage and carrots, the slight bite from the scallions, the creaminess from the mayonnaise. and the nutty flavor from the Sesame Oil and Seeds.  It really is a sidekick that can go with anything.  It is delicious on its own as a side, topped on top of a burger or grilled cheese or chicken sandwich, mixed into a Chicken salad, topped on top of a greens salad, or on top of a tomato soup!

I remember back in my younger years, before marriage and kids, I always had a sidekick.  Not just any sidekick, a SUPER Sidekick – one best friend that I could count on to be there and go anywhere with me and that I would be the same for her.  We were inseparable.  Today, it’s either my husband or….yes, coleslaw.  LOL – no really, I literally just laughed out loud at myself!

Sesame Asian Coleslaw goes with so many dishes!

Ok, I have more friends than coleslaw, but this amazing Asian Coleslaw is truly a Super Sidekick!  It is delicious on its own as a side, topped on top of a burger or grilled cheese or chicken sandwich, mixed into a Chicken salad, topped on top of a greens salad, or on top of a tomato soup!

This slaw recipe is easy and can be made ahead to use throughout the week.  And to make it even easier…you can use the mix already shredded and ready to go at the store!  It is also extremely forgiving, you can go a little more or less on most of the ingredients depending on your tastes.

Enjoy!
