I love asian inspired flavors in my food, and especially when there is a lot of ginger! This recipe was created while chasing a craving one day in my kitchen. I also had to use up a lot of cabbage. Asian slaw is now a staple in our rotation!


  • 1 large head of cabbage
  • 1 bunch scallions
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup sesame oil — where to find
  • 1/3 cup coconut vinegar — where to find
  • 2 Tbsp coconut aminos — where to find
  • 1/4 cup almond butter — where to find
  • 2 Tbsp fresh grated ginger
  • 1 Tbsp Siracha Sauce, optional for the spice — where to find
  • 3 large garlic cloves minced
  • 1 bunch cilantro (chopped)


  • Shred cabbage and slice the scallions. To make fast work of shredding, use THIS handy tool!
  • In a large bowl mix the cabbage, green onions, and cilantro

    Kate nice recipe. Made from the heart. The only wish I would have is that when you list the ingredients, if you could write it in spoons. For example for the garlic you say three bunches, but I think most people just buy the crushed garlic these days. So spoon measurement would be great for us lazy people. I have to say this is the first time I heard about Coconut aminos.Thanks for links on where to buy.

      Garlic in one of those wonderful foods that can be very individual in recipes. I personally love garlic and think more is better. You can try with one spoonful and taste it. Then add more to your taste preference. :)

    Oh my goodness. This dressing is Ahhhh Mazing! I edited to my taste a little – I don’t know what kind of sesame oil you used by I had toasted sesame oil which has a very, very strong flavor so I use a couple tablespoons of that with olive oil. I didn’t have any coconut vinegar so I used white vinegar AND sweetened rice vinegar and left out the honey. It was sooo good. Thanks for this one!

    The salad was VERY good! I didn’t have almond better, so I used peanut butter.
    This was good. We all loved it.
