With just 3 tablespoons of sesame oil instead of mayonnaise, this is a much healthier take on coleslaw. Scallions, rice vinegar, and sesame seeds give it an Asian accent, while cucumber lends a cooling note. Admittedly, the sesame products aren't local, but chef Anne Obelnicki allows herself some imported ingredients for variety's sake.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 large (or 1 whole small) Napa cabbage, washed and cut into thin strips across the leaf
  • 1 large (or 2 small) cucumbers, washed, peeled (optional), and cut into thin matchsticks
  • 1 carrot, peeled and shredded
  • 4 scallions, sliced thinly crosswise
  • Asian Cabbage Slaw Dressing (see accompanying recipe)

Instructions:

Mix all vegetables in a large bowl. Toss with dressing (recipe below), and set aside to wilt at least a half-hour before serving.

Asian Cabbage Slaw Dressing:

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup brown rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar

Instructions:

In a medium-size bowl, whisk all ingredients together. Yield: about 3/4 cup dressing
