Cabbage and Carrot Salad

Carrot Ginger Miso Dressing


Assemble Cabbage and Carrot Salad

  • Shred cabbage with a knife or use a food processor. (See notes in the post). Peel the carrots and slice into matchstick pieces.
  • Salt the cabbage and place in a large bowl. Cover with a heavy pot filled with water to press. Allow the cabbage to sit for up to 1 hour. Pour off the excess water. Combine cabbage with the carrots and sesame seeds.

Make the Carrot Ginger Miso Dressing

  • Peel the fresh ginger using the back of a spoon or peeler. Peeling fresh ginger can be a challenge because of its irregular shape. (See my tips to peel ginger in post). Next peel the carrot. 
  • Throw the carrot, ginger, miso, rice vinegar and toasted sesame oil into a high speed blender. Emulsify until the dressing is completely smooth. It will look like cheese sauce when it's done.


This salad will last in the fridge for up to 5 days.  
The dressing can be frozen for up to 3 months.
