We grilled some yummy, simple, herbed chicken breasts last night and since my daughter Andrea was visiting I decided to create a slaw featuring her favorite, creamy peanut sauce as an accompaniment. Oh WOW! I can’t believe I never thought to do this before. A match made in heaven!

for the salad:

~ serves 6 to 8 ~

14 oz. shredded coleslaw mix

1 cup shredded carrots

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

1 large clove garlic, minced

Mix all salad ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Toss to combine.

for the spicy, creamy, peanut sauce:

1/4 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)

1/3 cup real mayonnaise

3 Tablespoons sriracha hot sauce

2 Tablespoons sweet, smoky BBQ sauce

1 Tablespoon honey

3 Tablespoons water

2 Tablespoons rice vinegar

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

Mix all sauce ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Stir with a wire whisk until smooth. Pour over slaw ingredients. Mix well.

Divide between 6 to 8  salad bowls and garnish with peanuts and chopped cilantro.

Enjoy!
