Colorful Sesame Ginger Slaw Salad • Cook Love Heal by Rachel Zierzow

Colorful Sesame Ginger Slaw Salad


This beautiful, crunchy salad comes from the cookbook Katie’s Healing Kitchen: Healthy Plant-Based Recipes for Every Kitchen by Katie Farina.




  • 3 tablespoons tamari
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 2 inch piece ginger, finely grated on a microplane zester


  • 1 small head green cabbage, very finely shredded
  • 1 bunch cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 medium bell pepper, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup snap peas or snow peas, trimmed and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 green onions, white and green parts, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup seedless tangerine slices
  • 1/2 cup salted peanuts or cashews, coarsely chopped


  1. Combine all dressing ingredients in a small jar and shake it up!
  2. Toss shredded cabbage with cilantro and dressing in large bowl. Top with remaining vegetables, green onion, tangerine, and nuts.

Chef Tips

  1. Make the dressing up to 3 days in advance to save time and let the flavors really meld together. If you’re avoiding soy the tamari can be replaced with coconut aminos. Just omit maple syrup and add a few pinches of salt if using coconut aminos.

We can help each other through these trying times

Now that we are all stuck at home I am creating more ways to help you connect to the community through healthy and delicious food. Every Wednesday at noon I am doing a Facebook Live show featuring cooking demos, tips and guest chefs from around the country. You can find that on my personal facebook page   

I also just started a low-cost subscription called Cooking Together to help people stay healthy while we all work to get through these challenging times. One of the most important things to me is community, so more than ever I want to focus on the community side of Cook Love Heal. Find out more about it here.

Join me in the Cook Love Heal Community

Just like before this started, when you join the Cook Love Heal Community I’ll send you my Natural Health Starter Kit for free, along with regular recipes & tips every week.

We’re all in this together. Let’s help each other build a better future
