Kale Slaw with Peanut Dressing

Serves 8
An untraditional take on coleslaw, this salad has thinly sliced kale tossed with crunchy bell pepper and carrot slices. The slaw is finished with a salty peanut dressing and adds a fresh, vibrant note to your barbecue plate.

  • 1 yellow, orange, or red bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, halved crosswise and thinly sliced lengthwise

  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup salted peanuts, plus 1/4 cup salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt


  1. Toss kale, bell pepper, and carrots in a large bowl.
  2. Puree vegetable oil, cider vinegar, salted peanuts, light-brown sugar, and coarse salt in a blender until smooth.
  3. Pour dressing over vegetables just before serving. Sprinkle with salted peanuts, coarsely chopped.
