So simple to make. I used fresh cilantro and green onions from my herb garden. At first, I thought I didn't have enough dressing, but as it "cured", the dressing definitely held the slaw together. I served this as a bed under grilled Oriental tuna. When plated, I sprinkled wasabi sauce over the tuna, and sprinkled with the toasted sesame seeds. MY HUSBAND said, "WE couldn't get a better meal in a fancy restaurant." A winner!
Gotta agree with sugarpea and PaulaG here- TO DIE FOR! I followed the recipe just about exactly (we only used about 1/2 a bell pepper because it was a big one) and omitted the cilantro. SOOO yummy. BF is being a snob because its not a traditional cole slaw with mayo, but he loves it too. Mild but flavorful sesame flavor pairs amazingly with the crisp napa cabbage and the sweet peppers. The green onions are an important part too! Love, love, love it! Thanks for posting.

I live in the San Francisco area and love it here. I discovered Recipezaar (then Food.com..Genius Kitchen) in 2001 and have been so happy to have my favorite recipes stored safely here. I am mother to 7 and grandmother to 7. I love to knit, smock, sew, etc., but my favorite hobby of the moment is traditional rug hooking. This is a sample of what I do.? It's called "November".? I dyed most of the wool myself. It is made from wool flannel, cut into strips a little less than 1/4" and then worked into a linen backing. This is my 3rd rug.
