All your favorite sushi flavors come together in this crunchy slaw featuring napa cabbage, chopped nori, scallions, and sesame seeds. A ginger-infused pear and soy sauce dressing offers the perfect balance of salt and sweetness that pays homage to classic sushi accouterments.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup pear juice or pear puree
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • ½ teaspoon soy sauce
  • 6 cups thinly sliced napa cabbage (1 lb.)
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced scallions
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped nori (1 sheet)
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl whisk together pear juice, vinegar, ginger, and soy sauce. Add cabbage and scallions; toss to combine. Just before serving, stir in nori and sesame seeds.

This is amazing! Such great flavors and the dressing is genius with no oil. I added avocado to my husbands portion.

Is the nori raw or toasted?

Hi Sara,

We meant the pre-toasted kind, but you could try raw. Any dried seaweed will be delicious, but a toasted variety probably adds a bit deeper flavor.

Thank you,

Toasted…contributes to the sushi flavor.

Dear Forks over Knives,

Please include suggested number of servings in your recipes.

I realize that this is never really an absolute, as people’s appetites and meal formats are all different, but a general suggestion from someone who knows and has used the recipe would be helpful.

Best of all are the recipes that express suggested serving sizes as “6 servings as an appetizer, 3 as a salad course, and 2 servings as a main course.”

Thank you very much!
