Fresh orange juice and ginger brighten the Asian flavors of the dressing in this Chinese Cabbage Salad. When selecting mandarin oranges at the store, opt for ones that are a bit firm to slightly soft, with a noticeable citrus fragrance.

Chinese Cabbage Salad

Ingredients

  • 6 mandarin oranges or clementines
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce or tamari sauce
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 2 teaspoons pure cane sugar
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • ½ teaspoon Asian chili paste (sambal oelek)
  • 2 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 2 cups shredded kale
  • 2 cups packaged fresh julienned carrots
  • 2 cups bite-size strips red sweet peppers
  • ½ cup unsalted dry-roasted peanuts, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup sliced green onions

Instructions

  1. Peel, seed, and section mandarin oranges over a bowl to catch juice; reserve 2 tablespoons of the juice.
  2. In an extra-large bowl whisk together the reserved orange juice, vinegar, soy sauce, tahini, sugar, ginger, and chili paste. Add orange sections, cabbage, kale, carrots, sweet peppers, ¼ cup of the peanuts, and the green onions; toss to coat.
  3. Top servings with the remaining ¼ cup peanuts.
