  • 2 Tablespoons white miso paste
  • 1 Teaspoon maple syrup or honey
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh minced ginger
  • 1 Teaspoon water
  • 1 Teaspoon sriracha (optional)

For the slaw

  • 4 Cups kale leaves, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/8 Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Cup red cabbage, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 Cup carrot, grated

Directions

For the dressing

Whisk all the dressing ingredients together in a bowl, and set aside. If you want the dressing to be thinner, add another teaspoon of water.

For the slaw

Place kale leaves in large bowl and drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil over them. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Massage kale with your fingers for a few minutes, until the kale is tender.

Add red cabbage and carrot to the kale, and mix together. Pour in your desired amount of dressing, and mix to coat the slaw.

Top with sesame seeds and serve immediately.

Asian Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Asian Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chili peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
