Napa and savoy cabbage are a softer and sweeter variety than your regular green cabbage, so choose either for this recipe. This is a wonderful accompaniment to serve with one of your favorite winter soups. Adds a refreshing crispiness to your meal.

For the Dressing

3 TB raw apple cider vinegar

3 TB fresh lemon juice

2 TB nama shoyu or tamari (wheat free soy sauce)

1 TB agave

1 1/2 TB sesame oil

1 TB hot toasted sesame oil

1 TB fresh grated ginger root

nice pinch of red pepper flakes (depending on how hot you want it)

For the Slaw

1 pound napa or savoy cabbage, trimmed and sliced thinly into strips

4 red radishes, sliced

1/2 cup snap peas, sliced

2 scallions, green parts only, thinly sliced (reserve white part for another use)

1 TB black and/or white sesame seeds

2 TB cilantro, chopped

1. For the dressing: In a bowl, whisk everything together until combine.
2. For the slaw: Mix everything, except the sesame seeds, in a large bowl. Then toss in dressing.
3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes or up to 4 hours ahead of time to allow cabbage to absorb flavors.
4. Taste and season with a dash of sea salt if necessary.
5. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
