Servings: 4 to 6 people


  • Cutting Board and Chef's Knife
  • Medium Mixing Bowl or Jar


  • 6 cups shredded cabbage (I use a mix of green and red; you can also use bagged coleslaw mix)
  • 1 cup matchstick carrots
  • 1 red bell pepper, julienned
  • 1 cup chow mein noodles
  • 3/4 cup shelled edamame
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion
  • 1 jalapeño, seeds and ribs removed, thinly sliced (optional)
  • Optional garnish: toasted sesame seeds
  • Kosher salt to taste

Orange-Sesame Miso Dressing

  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice (from 1 orange)
  • 2 Tbsp. tahini
  • 2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. white miso paste
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. toasted sesame oil


  • Prepare dressing by combining all ingredients in a medium bowl or glass jar. Use an immersion blender, frother, or whisk to mix until smooth and creamy. Taste and season with a pinch of salt, if needed.
  • Combine all salad ingredients in a large bowl, and lightly season with kosher salt. Pour dressing overtop, and toss to combine. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds, if desired.


  • Feel free to add shredded rotisserie chicken, shrimp, or cubes of sautéed extra-firm tofu to boost protein.
  • The dressed salad will last for up to 2 days in the fridge. The ingredients will soften, however the flavors will stay sharp.
  • You can prepare everything ahead and wait to dress it until serving to help veggies maintain their crunch.
