Cultural Mongrel Cabbage Slaw

(recipe, Shoshanna Cohen)

primary-image, l


    1. 1 lb. cabbage (a mix of purple and green is nice), sliced very thin
    2. Some green onions, thinly sliced
    3. A few carrots, shredded
    1. ¼ cup rice vinegar
    2. 2  Tbsp. soy sauce
    3. 2 tsp. sesame oil, preferably the dark toasted kind
    4. ¼ tsp. red-pepper flakes or Sriracha hot chile sauce
    5. 2 tsp. black sesame seeds, plus more to taste


    1. Mix the slaw ingredients together. (You can layer them in a Pyrex bowl or clear Tupperware container, and it will look nice in a way that speaks to the authentic cultural heritage of the suburban Midwest.)
    2. Mix the dressing ingredients together in a bowl or shake them together in a jar.
    3. Pour the dressing over the salad. Sprinkle with extra sesame seeds, if you like.
