Cabbage Slaw | Recipes To The Rescue

Summer has definitely arrived.  It’s time to relax, kick back and chill.  Local produce is plentiful and each day brings new items on the shelves.  Not only are they full of colour, they have so much flavour there’s little cooking required…. it’s a good excuse to take a break from the stove. Here is a simple easy slaw that goes with many summer dishes.

Cabbage Slaw


Serves 6

1 cup carrot, grated
1 apple, grated
2 cups thinly shredded green cabbage
2 cups thinly shredded purple cabbage
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, peeled, finely chopped
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon chili paste such as Sambal Oelek
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

In a bowl, combine carrot, apple, green and purple cabbage, green onions, jalapeño pepper and ginger.  In a small bowl whisk together rice vinegar, sugar and chili paste.  Toss the cabbage with the dressing.  Season with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle toasted sesame seeds on top.
