Sesame Cabbage Salad

We've been seeing lots of green cabbage in the shares lately (one of my favorites!). I've been searching for new summer cabbage recipes, and this one caught my eye - adapted from

Sesame Cabbage Salad
1 large cucumber
1 cup thinly slivered red onion
8 cups finely shredded cabbage (can mix red and green cabbage, if available)
⅓ cup thinly sliced green onions
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons roasted sesame seeds (stir in a frying pan over medium heat until golden, 5 to 6 minutes)
¾ cup Sesame Dressing

Sesame Dressing: ½ cup rice vinegar, 2 tablespoons organic sugar, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon ground white pepper.

1. Rinse and thinly slice cucumber. In a bowl, mix cucumber, onion, and sesame dressing. Cover and chill at least 1 hour or up to 1 day.
2. Up to 1 hour before serving, layer cabbage in a large bowl. Pour marinated cucumber mixture over the top. Sprinkle with green onions, cilantro, and sesame seeds. Just before serving, mix well.
