Refreshing Summer Slaw

I randomly created this refreshing and crunchy slaw during our quarantine when we ran out of everything else. The key ingredients are Asian pear, apple and crab sticks. The family devoured it and kept asking for more.  Furthermore, I also found that it keeps very well in the fridge and tastes better the longer it marinates.  This slaw goes well as salad for a meal or a side dish to your next BBQ.

This recipe is rated easy and serves 2 as a main dish.


1/2 ripened avocado (cubed)

1 green apple

1/2 English cucumber

1 Asian pear

2 scallion finely chopped

1/2 tbsp of minced garlic

6 crab sticks shredded

1/3 tsp of sugar

1 and 1/2 tbsp of Kewpie mayo (regular mayo will work, but you will not get the tangy-sweet taste that you will get with Japanese mayo)

1/4 tsp of salt

1/4 tsp of pepper


Julienne the apples, Asian pears, and English cucumbers into matchsticks and place into a large bowl.

Finely dice 2 scallions (discard the white ends) and add to the chopped fruit.

Scoop out half of an avocado, cube and add to the mixture.

Shred the crab sticks by hand and add to the slaw.

Add the minced garlic, sugar, salt, pepper and Kewpie mayo.

Mix the ingredients well and set aside for at least 15 minutes before serving.

This will stay in the fridge for up to a week.
