Double Sesame Seed Slaw

Beyond food themes, I like to honor the ingredients in recipes with herbs, dressings, and marinades that echo the flavors, textures, and character of various foods. For example, in the Double Sesame Seed Slaw, Napa cabbage, snow peas, and black sesame seeds merit a dressing and seasonings that compliment the textures and tastes of those foods.

Ingredients

4 cups Napa cabbage, shredded
½ cup snow peas, diced 
½ cup carrots, diced
2 tablespoons black sesame seeds
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons Litehouse® Instantly Fresh Spring Onion
2 tablespoons Litehouse® Instantly Fresh Salad Herb Blend
½ cup plus 1 tablespoon Litehouse® Sesame Ginger

Directions

Pour Litehouse® Toasted Sesame Ginger Dressing into large serving bowl. Add cabbage, snow peas, carrots, and freeze-dried herbs.
 
Toss salad with a wooden or silicon spoon, and mix ingredients thoroughly. Add brown sugar and continue mixing gently.  Garnish coleslaw with black sesame seeds.
 
Refrigerate for 30 minutes or more before serving.

Pink Lady Apple & Jicama Slaw

The recipe for Pink Lady Apple and Jicama Slaw was developed for a New York themed party for a friend who is moving there. Litehouse’s “Fuji Apple Vinaigrette” is light, creamy and perfect for coleslaw that includes fruit. The slightly tart “Pink Lady” apples and the mild flavor of jicama are accented and heightened. The freeze-dried cilantro adds a sweet finish to the slaw.

Ingredients

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 cups Pink Lady apples, diced (about 2 large apples)
4 cups shredded green cabbage
1 cup shredded red cabbage
1 cup jicama, julienned 
¾ cup Litehouse® Fuji Apple Vinaigrette 
2 tablespoons Litehouse® Instantly Fresh Cilantro 
1 teaspoon sugar
Cilantro leaves for garnishing

Directions

Pour squeeze lemon juice over diced apples and set aside. Put both cabbage ingredients and the jicama to a large serving bowl.
 
Drain lemon juice from apples and add apples to the serving bowl. Add Litehouse® Fuji Apple Vinaigrette Dressing along with Instantly Fresh Cilantro.
 
Toss salad with a wooden or silicon spoon, and mix ingredients thoroughly. Add sugar and continue mixing gently.
 
Refrigerate for 30 minutes or more before serving.
