Asian slaw is somewhat of a general term that doesn't fall neatly under one specific type of Asian cuisine. It's most often eaten as a side dish and usually but not always exclusively associated with Korean or Japanese dishes. This recipe uses soy sauce, sesame oil, ​and ginger for maximum flavor.

What You'll Need

  • 4 cups purple cabbage (shredded)
  • 2 large carrots (peeled and cut into julienne strips)
  • 1 red bell pepper (cored, seeded, and cut into julienne strips)
  • 1 yellow bell pepper (cored, seeded, and cut into julienne strips)
  • For the Dressing:
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons oil (neutral such as grapeseed or canola)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ginger (fresh grated)
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

How to Make It

  1. In a large bowl, toss together the cabbage, carrots, and peppers.
  2. Whisk together the dressing ingredients, and pour over the vegetables. Toss to coat. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
