Asian Coleslaw

Fresh flavors and perky crunch make this slaw the perfect side.

This slaw makes the perfect accompaniment at a sushi dinner or start of an Asian-fusion tofu taco! Fragrant ginger and cilantro are just two of the great flavor elements in this Asian-style slaw that is simple to put together and very fresh tasting. Daikon is a large white radish available in many supermarkets and Asian grocers. For a more colorful mixture, substitute one cup of shredded purple cabbage for one cup of green.

Serves 4

What You Need:

  • 2-1/2 cups shredded green cabbage
  • 1 cup grated daikon radish
  • 1/2 cup grated carrot
  • 1 large scallion, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon tamari soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar or a natural sweetener
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

What You Do:

  1. In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, daikon, carrot, scallion, and cilantro. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the ginger, lime juice, rice vinegar, sesame oil, tamari, sugar, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir until well blended.
