Chinese Cabbage Salad

Prepackaged shredded cabbage salad mix lends even more convenience to this sweet-tart salad. This is also a great make-ahead dish: as it refrigerates overnight, the cabbage softens slightly and the tangy flavors blend even more. Try a crisp Asian pear or juicy seedless red grapes in place of the apple.

Yield

Makes 6 servings

Ingredients

6 tablespoons cider vinegar
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1 large crisp red apple, diced
1 medium (1 to 1-1/4 pounds) head green cabbage or 1 bag (16 ounces) prepackaged shredded cabbage salad mix
1/3 cup golden raisins
2 green onions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

Preparation

  1. Combine vinegar, sugar, oil and ginger in large bowl; stir until sugar dissolves. Stir in apple.
  2. Add cabbage, raisins, onions, cilantro and sesame seeds; gently stir until well combined.

Note

Store cabbage tightly wrapped in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. A one-pound cabbage will yield about 4 cups shredded cabbage.
