Chinese Cabbage Salad

At the farm we’ve been making variations of this recipe for years.  It’s a nutritionally packed recipe with refreshing flavor.

Ingredients:

4 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 Tbsp sesame oil

3 Tbsp sugar

1 tsp ginger

1 apple, or canned fruit like mandarin oranges

1 medium head chinese cabbage

1/3 cup golden raisins

minced onion

2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro or other herb

1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds or sliced almonds

sliced radishes

Method:

Combine vinegar, sugar, oil and ginger in large bowl; stir until sugar dissolves.  Stir in fruit.

Add cabbage, raisins, onions, cilantro, and sesame seeds; gently stir until well combined.

This is also a great make-ahead dish: cover, refrigerate overnight, and the cabbage softens slightly and the tangy flavors blend even more.

Be creative and try variations.
