Asian Turkey Slaw could be classified as easy, addicting-ly delicious… yet perhaps doesn’t yield the most beautiful presentation.
If I had a nice baguette or breadstick to accompanying it maybe that would make it a bit sexier in appeal, but I don’t buy baguettes nor do I have any breadsticks on hand.
So this Asian Turkey Slaw recipe has been around forever most commonly known as “crack slaw.” Back to that addicting-ly (<<that really should be a word) delicious part. I do not condone crack usage I’m merely pointing out how this slaw got it’s name. Many recipes call for sesame oil, but I omit it to limit the fat and quite frankly I find it overpowering.
I use a bag of Asian coleslaw, hence the name “Asian Turkey Slaw” (savoy cabbage, green cabbage, carrots, celery and cilantro) from Costco. I’ve also used other varieties that include kale or just the traditional bagged coleslaw everyone knows and it’s all good.
I’m working on a new FREE ebook that will include a mix of recipes including the total servings, calories, and macro breakdown as shown above.
The first one includes a variety of dishes that are under 500 calories (I think). Many recipes are ones that I’ve shared here before but now with the nutritional information provided in a handy download you can reference for meal planning. Future posts will talk more about macros and why I include the info. Questions in the meantime, hit me up!
I’m already working on compiling additional recipes for future ebooks that will include breakfast and snacks designed to give you some fresh ideas.
Now, print this recipe and start making some Asian Turkey Slaw!
- 1lb 93% lean ground turkey
