This is an interesting salad. Wasabi is Japanese horseradish. I found this recipe for someone requesting in Recipe Request. You could probably add a little lime juice too to jazz up the flavors. It would go great with grilled salmon or tuna.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In 1-cup glass measure or small jar, combine wasabi with water; let stand 10 minutes.
  2. Add vinegar, oil, brown sugar and sesame seeds.
  3. (This can be made ahead to allow flavors to blend.) Toss dressing with cabbage, radishes, cucumber and sunflower kernels.

Very simple to make, and a great departure from the everyday slaw. Needs to stand for about 15-20 minutes after mixing the dressing. Also, I think the sunflower seeds refers to the shelled kernels -- it would be far too crunchy otherwise!!

I'm a coward, so I reduced the wasabi to 2 tsps instead of the 2T...kept the rest of the measurments the same.....turned out very good, really was differant and unusual....a nice change from the ordinary cole slaw..
