Kona Grill’s Red Pepper Coleslaw

Kona Grills Red Pepper ColeslawOne of my favorite things to get at Kona Grill is their chicken satay appetizer because it comes with this amazing red pepper coleslaw.  I am addicted to the stuff, it is a little spicy and a little sweet and just all around so good.  It has gorgonzola cheese and roasted red peppers mixed in to finely shredded cabbage with a slightly spicy coleslaw sauce that is to die for.  I remember the first time that we ordered this we were fighting over the last bites of this coleslaw.  Now when I go, if we don’t get the chicken satay I still ask for a side of this tasty slaw.
This red pepper coleslaw goes great with our chicken satay recipe HERE.  But really it makes a good side dish to almost any meal.  And it tastes fantastic on sandwiches too.  I am going to make a grilled chicken sandwich with pepper jack cheese and top it with this slaw tonight.  I can hardly wait!  It would be super yummy on our Cajun Chicken Po’ Boy Sandwiches HERE.

    How have I never noticed Gorgonzola in this! I’m the same way; every time we go to Kona I have to get the satay, and that slaw is a big big part of the reason. I don’t even like coleslaw typically! Have you ever tried to make their teriyaki dipping sauce that’s served with the satay?

      I haven’t tried making their teriyaki sauce, but that’s a great idea for an upcoming recipe. Stay tuned!
