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 GroupRecipes.com.
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.
