Thanksgiving is fast approaching and for me, the highlight of the day is making a big, delicious meal for my family.
I tend to go a little bit overboard during the holidays and this year will be no exception! From tried and true favourites to new tasty fall dishes, there’s just nothing better than Thanksgiving dinner.
One of our family’s standby recipes for special occasions is an Asian salad we call Japanese Coleslaw. And with its tangy dressing and great crunch, it’s no wonder it’s so popular. I especially love seeing how the boys gobble it up, since the cabbage in the coleslaw has plenty of fibre and nutrients!
The crunch from the nuts, seeds and Ramen noodles is what makes this Asian salad so popular with my boys, and I love how easy it is too! For a fun twist, replace the homemade salad dressing with ½ cup or so of your favourite salad dressing! Kraft Asian Sesame dressing is especially good with this recipe.
Of course, there will be many more dishes on our Thanksgiving table, from succulent turkey to fluffy mashed potatoes to decadent desserts.

Special occasions call for special dishes, and when they’re as easy as this Asian salad, you’ll be happy to whip them up! After all, simple and delicious food is always something to be thankful for!
