Asian Cabbage Slaw

With just 3 tablespoons of sesame oil instead of mayonnaise, this is a much healthier take on coleslaw. Scallions, rice vinegar, and sesame seeds give it an Asian accent, while cucumber lends a cooling note. Admittedly, the sesame products aren’t local, but chef Anne Obelnicki allows herself some imported ingredients for variety’s sake.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 large (or 1 whole small) Napa cabbage, washed and cut into thin strips across the leaf
  • 1 large (or 2 small) cucumbers, washed, peeled (optional), and cut into thin matchsticks
  • 1 carrot, peeled and shredded
  • 4 scallions, sliced thinly crosswise
  • Asian Cabbage Slaw Dressing (see accompanying recipe)

Instructions

Mix all vegetables in a large bowl. Toss with dressing (recipe below), and set aside to wilt at least a half-hour before serving.
