This salad has the perfection combination of flavours and textures. Not only is it delicious, but it's also vegan-friendly. Cabbage is tossed together with spring onions, sesame seeds and almonds in a garlic-ginger dressing.
To give this salad a little "kick", I added a dash of Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce. I did not add the full amount of salt and pepper, I added it to taste. I made this around noon today as to give it time to sit in the dressing until dinner. VERY good, though my husband and I thought this needed more dressing. Next time, I will double the dressing ingredients. - 16 Jul 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I'm giving it 5 stars because I like the dressing. I did start modifying before I tried the original recipe because...I'm serving it to guests tonight and I wanted to take advantage of all of the good cooks' recommendations. I added carrots and broccoli, changed the sugar to honey and otherwise did as instructed. It's a wonderful slaw salad and uses many of my garden veggies. - 18 Jul 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made this to go with a Japanese chicken dish, because I had half a head of cabbage to use. I was out of scallions, which would have helped a lot, and I chose not to bother with the almonds. I added two shredded carrots, did use the garlic, and used only 1/2 tsp pepper. Not bad, but the sesame oil was too overpowering. I ended up using another Tbsp each of sugar and vinegar to try to counteract the oil. If I make it again, will use 1 T. sesame oil and 1 T. canola, with the same amt. of other ingredients. - 19 Jul 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
