Asian Coleslaw Recipe | Coleslaw Without Mayonnaise | Healthy Coleslaw

This Asian coleslaw recipe is very simple and refreshing. Healthy coleslaw is the perfect way to finish off a meal. It’s also a great accompaniment for fish or steak, or by itself as a snack. If you don’t like the Asian twist, here is my traditional coleslaw recipe. It’s difficult to make coleslaw without mayonnaise, but this recipe fits the bill! It’s a healthy coleslaw.

Asian Coleslaw Recipe



  • 8 ounces (half a bag, if you’re using a mix) of shredded coleslaw
  • 1/2 sweet onion
  • 1 finely chopped tomato
  • 1 grated carrot
  • 1/2 cup chopped raw green beans (optional – you could substitute cucumber)
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar (brown or white, I used brown)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • cheddar cheese (optional)


  1. Mix together the veggies – cabbage, onion, tomato, carrot, beans/cucumber.

  2. In a separate bowl, make the dressing – mix the lime juice, lemon juice, chili powder, cumin, sugar, and salt and pepper.
  3. Add as much dressing as you like – I used it all.
  4. Serve alone or with cheese and ENJOY!
Because this is a coleslaw without mayonnaise, it definitely has a different taste to it – but it’s a good variation on a classic, I think. I hope you try it out.
