  • 1 small head of cabbage (green or red), shredded
  • 2 carrots, julienned
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 4 green onions, sliced (white and green parts)

  1. In a large bowl, combine the shredded cabbage, julienned carrots, sliced bell pepper, sliced green onions, and chopped cilantro. Toss to mix everything together.
  2. In a small bowl or jar with a tight-fitting lid, whisk together the rice vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, honey, grated ginger, minced garlic, and red pepper flakes. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  3. Pour the dressing over the slaw and toss gently to coat all the vegetables evenly.
  4. Cover the bowl and refrigerate the Asian Slaw for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  5. Before serving, give the slaw a good toss to redistribute the dressing. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.
  6. Serve chilled or at room temperature as a refreshing side dish or a light main course.

Additional Tips

  • For extra crunch, you can add sliced almonds or crispy noodles to the slaw.
  • If you prefer a creamier dressing, you can add a dollop of Greek yogurt or mayonnaise to the dressing mixture.
  • Feel free to experiment with different types of cabbage, such as napa or savoy, for a unique twist.
  • Leftovers will keep well in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, but the slaw may lose some of its crunch over time.
