Asian Slaw

My friend Robin shared this with me. She adds small cubes of firm tofu, too.



  • 2 cups baby spinach, cut in thin strips

  • 2 cups nappa cabbage, thinly sliced

  • 2 cups red cabbage, thinly sliced

  • ½ hothouse cucumber, peeled, seeded and cut into small dice

  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced on the diagonal

  • small handful radishes, cut into matchsticks

  • 1 T toasted black sesame seeds - reserve for top


  • 1 garlic clove

  • 2 T canola oil

  • 1 T sesame oil

  • 3 T rice vinegar

  • 2 T soy sauce

  • ½ jalapeno, ribs and seeds removed and finely chopped

  • 1 T tahini

  • 2 T fresh herbs: mint, cilantro and basil


Toss together salad ingredients (except sesame seeds) in a large bowl.

Blend dressing ingredients well. Taste for seasoning. Just before service add dressing and toss. Top with sesame seeds and serve.
