Asian Slaw


3 cups shredded napa cabbage
1 cup finely julienned carrots
1/2 cup finely julienned snow peas
1/2 cup finely julienned red or yellow bell pepper
1/3 cup chopped scallions
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon minced ginger
3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 teaspoons hot chili paste (or to taste)
1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds or 1/4 cup finely chopped peanuts

Cooking Instructions

Place the cabbage, carrots, snow peas, bell pepper, scallions, and cilantro in a large mixing bowl.

In a small bowl, mix together the ginger, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, lime juice, sesame oil, hot chili paste, and sugar. Whisk until the sugar has dissolved. Pour the dressing over the vegetables and toss to mix evenly. Let sit for about 30 minutes, tossing occasionally, to allow the vegetables to absorb the flavors of the dressing. Serve, garnished with the sesame seeds or peanuts.

Makes 4 to 6 servings
