Shaved Cabbage with Soy and Lemon Dressing

Serve this classic Japanese salad as a refreshing side dish.

Serves: 4–6


3 cups very finely shaved cabbage (I used both red and white cabbages)
2 teaspoons black or white sesame seeds, toasted

2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon honey
¼ teaspoon wasabi paste
pinch sea salt


Dressing: Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl.

Place the cabbage in a large bowl and toss with just enough dressing to coat.

Transfer to serving bowls and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
