Description

This recipe turns boring cabbages (which can sit in my refrigerator for weeks), into a salad so irresistible its typically gone in 24 hours.

Ingredients

1/2  
cabbage
4  
carrot
1  
red bell pepper
1 tablespoon
sesame oil
1 tablespoon
sesame seeds
3 tablespoons
rice vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoon
sugar
1/8 teaspoon
salt
1 teaspoon
soy sauce
   
cilantro

Instructions

Thinly slice or shred the cabbage and carrots. I use my Cuisenart food processor with the grater blade which makes this step almost instantaneous. Toss the cabbage and carrots will all the rest of the ingredients. Garnish with cilantro leaves if desired and serve.

This recipe is fun to play around with:

  • Add 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes for some heat
  • Substitute roasted peanuts for the sesame seeds
  • Use purple cabbage in place of the green
  • Add other thinly sliced veggies depending on what’s in your refrigerator or CSA share!
