Asian Cole Slaw

Asia Cole Slaw. This five-minute (max) salad refreshes like no other, especially if all the ingredients are well-chilled as you begin. Quick and easy salad has become a staple at our house. In five minutes you have a healthy and satisfying component of a meal. Goes well with grilled fish.


  • 3 cups shredded green cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped peanuts


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil (I prefer the black sesame oil)
  • 3 tablespoons brown rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger

Combine the cabbages and carrots in a large bowl. Toss with your hands, and set aside. In another bowl whisk together everything else except the peanuts. Pour over the veggies and toss well. Best if marinated for about 15 minutes, but still excellent without the marination. Just before serving, mix well again and add the peanuts. Serves 3-4. 


At the online store, try Ginga Shizuku (Divine Droplets) Junmai Ginjo from Hokkaido. This sake strikes the palate with a lovely fresh crispness that softens soon after, and leads into a faint and subtle richness in the back of the flavor. The well defined floral fragrance ties gently with the ginger lacing. A perfect match for this salad.
