Asian-Flavored Slaw

Last week, I was happy to do another demo at Blooming Glen Farm.  It's always so fun to make dishes there for the folks picking up their shares.  I get to cook in a beautiful setting, using the best ingredients you can find (and that were grown right there) and I get to talk to people who really appreciate and enjoy good food.

Here's the first recipe of the 5 that I made there.  All are pretty simple, have great flavors and use seasonal ingredients.  So try them!

ASIAN-FLAVORED SLAW (adapted from The Barbecue Bible by Steven Raichlen)
Serves 4

I used red cabbage because that's the kind of cabbage the farm had.  And since peas aren't in season, I didn't include them.

1 garlic clove, minced
1 Tbsp ginger, minced or grated (or more to taste)
5 Tbsp rice vinegar (or more to taste)
2 Tbsp sugar (or more to taste)
1 Tbsp sesame oil
2 Tbsp black sesame seeds or toasted white sesame seeds
3 cups Napa cabbage, shredded (see note above)
2 medium carrots, peeled and shredded or grated
1/2 medium bell pepper, thinly sliced
4 scallions, white minced and green thinly sliced lengthwise
1/2 cup snow pea pods, whole, trimmed, stringed and thinly sliced (see note above)

  • Combine garlic, ginger, 5 Tbsp vinegar, 2 Tbsp sugar and 1/2 tsp salt in a large bowl.  Whisk until sugar dissolves.  Then whisk in oil and seeds.
  • Stir in cabbage, carrots, pepper, scallions and peas.  Toss to mix.
  • Adjust seasoning as needed.
  • Serve within 4 hours of making.
