Asian Slaw Salad + Miso Ginger Dressing

Ingredients

  • 2 cups green cabbage, finely shredded
  • 2 cups red cabbage, finely shredded
  • 2 radishes, julienned
  • 1 carrot, peeled & julienned
  • 1 tablespoon black sesame seeds

Miso-Ginger Dressing

  • 1 inch ginger, finely grated
  • 1 clove garlic, finely grated
  • 2 tablespoons mellow miso
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar (I used a seasoned rice vinegar)
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil, optional
  • 3 tablespoon water
In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the dressing. Alternately you can use a small blender to combine until smooth. Set aside.

In a large bowl, toss the cabbage, carrots, radishes and sesame seeds together with the dressing. You can also omit the sesame seeds and serve them as a garnish as the pictures above. Serve immediately if you like it very crunchy or let it sit covered in the refrigerator for a few hours for a more slaw-like texture and to let the flavors mingle a bit. Both ways are great. Depending on how you are serving the dish it can be served at room temperature or cold. Serves two generously or four as small sides.

Notes:

Thinly sliced green onions would also be a great addition to this salad.
