This is in my Top 5 Salads list. I cannot get enough of this. And it has all the benefits of the Fresh Cabbage Salad but with more flavor and much less sugar!!!! While it keeps in the fridge for a few days, be warned that the longer it sits, the spicier it gets! My kids can’t seem to handle it after the first day.
1/2 a head of Chinese cabbage, cored and slivered
2 green onions, minced
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp sesame oil (Use any other mild-flavored oil if you don’t have sesame. You won’t get the same flavor, but it will still be good.)
1 tsp sesame seeds
1 Tbsp white or rice vinegar
1 Tbsp sugar or honey
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1-2 tsp red pepper flakes or to taste (I use 1 tsp and it’s almost too hot for us!)
Combine cabbage and green onions in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients until sugar dissolves. Pour over salad and toss until well coated.
