I love Chinese Cabbage. I find it less "woody" than regular cabbage, which makes it easier to chop and easier to chomp!
This is a simple, clean salad with a dressing that is absolutely TO-DIE-FOR!! Seriously, I could DRINK the dressing! Sometimes I just make this salad as an excuse to have the dressing!!!
1/2 a small-medium Chinese Cabbage, finely sliced
1 large carrot grated or chopped into matchsticks
2 green onions, sliced
1 white onion, finely sliced
1 red capsicum, julienned (sliced into thin strips)
1 tablespoon black or white sesame seeds for garnish
1 teaspoon lite soy sauce or tamari
Juice of 3 limes
1 red chilli, finely sliced
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon mirin
2 tablespoons miso paste
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger (about a 2cm slice, peeled and grated. Using a ginger grater gives a wonderful fine texture)
Combine all ingredients and whisk thoroughly until well combined
Place all ingredients except sesame seeds into a large bowl.
Add dressing and toss to combine.
Serve garnished with black sesame seeds.
