Cole Slaw With Miso Dressing

Cole Slaw With Miso Dressing

Red cabbage is especially pretty in this dish, but green cabbage, Napa or Savoy would work just as well, so use whatever you like. This recipe makes a generous amount of dressing so that you can dress the slaw to your liking. Start by tossing the cabbage with half the miso mixture, then add more until it's dressed to your idea of perfection. Whatever you don’t use can be tossed with other salad greens, drizzled over rice, or used as a dip for crunchy cucumbers, snap peas or carrots.

  1. Step 1

    In a small bowl, whisk together miso, honey, vinegar and oil. Season with a pinch of salt (miso is salty, so don’t overdo it) and a few grinds of black pepper.
  2. Step 2

    Roughly chop any long pieces of cabbage so they are bite-size. Transfer cabbage to a large bowl and toss with half the dressing, adding more as you like. Slaw can be made up to this point up to 1 day ahead.
  3. Step 3

    Just before serving, add cilantro, peanuts and lime juice, and toss to combine.
