Japanese Cabbage Salad


I always credit my mom for a lot of our recipes, but my dad did make some dishes as well.  They were simple n’ easy and sometimes simple n’ easy is best!!  Like his Japanese Cabbage Salad recipe. 

I remember eating this salad the 1st time and couldn’t stop, so I asked my dad what was in the dressing and his simple reply was “Ponzu“.  So that is how the base of this recipe started and we built on that. 

Cabbage in it’s natural form does carry that very ‘green’ taste to it, but once you add in some salty zest into the mix, it becomes something strangely addictive!  And since cabbages are packed with vitamins C & K and plenty of antioxidants, not a bad thing to get addicted to! 

So next time you are in the mood to enjoy some greens with your meal, check out my dad’s super easy n’ simple Cabbage Salad!

  • 1/2 Stalk Green Onions
  • 1 tsp Sesame Oil

Directions

1) Gather all the ingredients.

2) Shred cabbage with a shredder.  Transfer to serving plate.

4) Finely chop green onions and sprinkle on top of the cabbage.

5) In a small mixing bowl, combine Sesame Oil and Ponzu.  Mix well and pour over cabbage.
