Thai Peanut Cabbage Slaw

Since I am totally into the Thai taste lately and we LOVE wraps at my house, this was a perfect fit for us! While we could have eaten it as a salad it was a huge hit at my house as a wrap... Very tasty and not a lot of calories so that made it even more appealing!

Thai Peanut Cabbage Slaw
(recipe found on pinterest via

1 granny smith apple, cored, peeled & chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon white rice vinegar
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 tablespoon water
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

5 cups shredded cabbage (or one 16-oz bag cole slaw mix)
1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
2 green onions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
1 cup raw green peas, fresh or frozen
1/2 cup roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped
2-1/2 cups cooked & shredded chicken breast

Puree dressing ingredients in a blender or food processor to a consistency similar to apple sauce. In large bowl, toss together slaw ingredients and dressing. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 3 days. Serve as a side or main dish salad, or use as a wrap filling.
