Top Review by Chef Schellies

This was very salty. We added 3-4 tablespoons of agave nectar and that softened some of the salty taste and made it much better. It's a healthy recipe, but if I make it again, I will definitely add some agave or honey to the recipe and possibly cut back on the soy sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice cabbage into thin ribbons and place in a large bowl.
  2. Slice carrots into thin sticks and place with the cabbage (I like to cut the carrot into 4 sections, cut each section in half, and then turn upside down and slice thinly).
  3. Chop scallions and place with the cabbage and carrots.
  4. Combine the tamari, rice vinegar and sesame oil in a small bowl (this is the dressing).
  5. Pour dressing gradually over the salad while mixing - I like it better lightly dressed, and reserve some for those who like extra dressing!
  6. Add chopped cilantro and sesame seeds and mix again.
  7. This salad gets better as it sits!
