Asian-Flavored Coleslaw

Cabbage varieties

If you’d like something fresh and crunchy to go along with Asian-style recipes, this simple Asian-flavored coleslaw serves the purpose nicely. Using any kind of cabbage you prefer, this goes well with stir-fries and noodle dishes.

Serves: 6 to 8

  • 5 to 6 cups thinly shredded red, white, or napa cabbage, or a combination
  • 2 large celery stalks, or large bok choy stalks (with leaves)
    sliced thinly on the diagonal
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into long, narrow strips
  • 2 to 3 scallions, sliced
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup Sesame-Ginger Salad Dressing, as needed
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste

Combine the cabbage, bell pepper, scallions, and optional cilantro in a serving container.

Pour the dressing over the vegetables. Season with pepper, and toss well. Let the salad stand for 10 minutes or so before serving.

Variation: For a shortcut, use a 16-ounce bag pre-shredded coleslaw.
