  • Dressing:
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar (unseasoned)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon peeled, minced fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon dark sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Salad:
  • 5 cups shredded Savoy cabbage
  • 1 cup matchstick-cut carrots
  • 1 scallion, cut into 1 1/2-inch julienne pieces
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced fresh mint leaves
  • 4 tablespoons dry-roasted peanuts, chopped


Whisk together the dressing ingredients until the sugar is dissolved.

In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, carrots, scallions, basil, and mint. Add the dressing, and toss well to coat. Sprinkle with the peanuts.

    To shred the cabbage, remove any wilted outer leaves; then cut the cabbage in half, remove the core, and thinly slice.
