Handy *New* Kitchen Gadget Used to Serve Peanutty Coleslaw

Handy Kitchen Gadget

Do you enjoy kitchen stores?  My mom and I love browsing in a kitchen store and nearly always find something fun to buy.  When we were at the beach this past weekend we took a break from spring cleaning to browse at a favorite beach kitchen store.  I spotted a Snapi server and couldn’t resist buying it for only $6.00.  I love the claw shape and how easily food is served with it.  I plan to use this gadget a lot this summer when we entertain on our patio or at the lake.

The Snapi makes it easy to grab a generous portion of a yummy dish like this slaw.  I am anxious to try this gadget with pasta because its always so hard to serve with tongs.

I have a feeling that the Snapi will be a conversation starter when guests see it in the bowl.  I think it looks like a crab!

I made a chicken for dinner the other night and served Peanutty Slaw with it.  This slaw has a bit of a kick and we really liked it.  The recipe is one that I clipped from Southern Living’s June 2008 issue.



Peanutty Coleslaw

Peanutty Coleslaw

  • Whisk together first 10 ingredients in a large bowl; add coleslaw mix, stirring to coat. Cover and chill 1 hour; stir in peanuts just before serving.

    1. What a cool little gadget! I also love kitchen stores and could browse in them for hours! I can see how it would be handy for pasta or any type of salad. It’s amazing the things they think of. The recipe sounds yummy, but I’ve never had wasabi, unsure if I would like it…but worth a try. Switching the sugar for Splenda would make it low-carb. Thanks!

    2. Paula,

      Thank you for for the blog and I am happy that you like the Snapi food server. The salad recipe sounds delicious as well. I will have to try it out.
