Meet my new JSHealth rainbow slaw! This fresh, crispy and colourful, Asian-inspired take on the traditional coleslaw will be your new go-to.

It’s the perfect salad to serve in a big bowl and share with family or friends. The nourishing brown rice and edamame provide a source of complex carbohydrates and protein to keep you energised and satisfied, whilst crunchy red apples add sweetness and freshness.

Try it… I think you’ll be converted too.

Serves: 3 as a main, or 4 as a side


2 cups cooked brown rice
2 spring onions, green & white section finely chopped
1 cucumber, diced
1 capsicum, diced
⅛ purple cabbage, shredded & chopped, 2 cups chopped
¾ cup frozen edamame, prepared as per packed instructions
½ red apple, finely diced
1/3 cup peanuts

For the dressing

¼ cup smooth peanut butter
1 tbsp tamari
2 tsp sesame oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tbsp maple syrup
½ lemon, juiced
1 tsp chilli flakes
½ tsp grated ginger, optional


To make the salad, combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Toss to combine.

To make the dressing, whisk together the ingredients in a small bowl. Pour the dressing over the salad, mix and serve. Enjoy!
