Easy Coleslaw Salad Recipe

On a recent vacation to Palm Springs, our family enjoyed this Easy Coleslaw Salad Recipe. Fast and delicious, it can be a vegetarian meal (without chicken), or even a way to use leftover grilled chicken. For extra quick and easy, try using frozen breaded chicken nuggets/breasts.

With longer days ahead, you may be looking for potluck ideas. Because the coleslaw is made without mayonnaise, it keeps longer. We just love this as refreshing side dish, or for a meal.

As an accompaniment, this will serve about 8, but as a main dish, about 5-6:


1 bag of coleslaw mix (you can make your own by shredding cabbage and carrots in a 2:1 ratio to make 3 cups)

1 bunch of green onions chopped

2 cups crispy won-ton noodles

1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar or Mozzarella)

4-6 T. creamy poppyseed or sweet and sour dressing (buy it, or make your own)

1-2 cups sliced black olives (optional)

1-2 cups cubed cooked chicken breast (optional)


Simply place all ingredients into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and shake until everything is coated with dressing. Taste and decide if you wish to add more dressing.

C'mon - I know you'll try it soon! Bring on summer and picnics!
