Cabbage and Radish Slaw with Peanut Dressing


In a coarsely cut cabbage-and-daikon-radish slaw, many of the components -- the peanut dressing with ginger and soy sauce, as well as the daikon -- give it an unmistakably Asian character.

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped shallot
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup rice-wine vinegar (not seasoned)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons packed dark-brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 small green cabbage, (about 1 3/4 pounds), finely shredded
  • 1 medium daikon radish, cut into 1/8-inch-thick matchsticks
  • 16 red radishes, halved lengthwise and cut into thin half-moons
  • 4 scallions, cut on the diagonal into long, thin slices
  • 1/2 cup dry-roasted peanuts


  1. Blend ginger, shallot, peanut butter, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, and oil in a blender until smooth; set aside.

  2. Put cabbage, daikon radish, red radishes, scallions, and peanuts in a large serving bowl. Pour in peanut dressing; toss thoroughly to combine.

Cook's Notes

The peanut dressing can be made ahead and refrigerated in an airtight container up to 4 days; bring it to room temperature before using. You can let this slaw stand for up to 1 hour after dressing it; if you do so, stir in the peanuts and red radishes just before serving so they stay crunchy.

    easy to make, and very tasty. I plan on using this for other salads as well...
