This is sweet, sour and has some heat to it. The original recipe was in a local paper some years ago. It calls for the dressing to be added to the slaw hot, but I prefer to let it cool a few minutes. I like the cabbage more crisp. You can make it ahead of time - just gets better as it sets. The recipe can easily be doubled.

How To Make slaw with sesame dressing

  • 1
    Place shredded cabbage and grated carrot in a medium bowl and mix together. Set aside.
  • 2
    Cut jalapenos in half lengthwise and remove seeds and ribs. Dice into small pieces.
  • 3
    In a small saucepan, heat sesame oil. Add jalapeno, onion and garlic. Cook and stir 1 minute.
  • 4
    Add vinegar, sugar, pepper and salt (optional). Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour hot dressing (or allow dressing to cool for a few minutes) over slaw mix and toss to coat. Let stand for at least 30 minutes to a hour, stirring occasionally. (You can even let it set overnight.) Just before serving, drain and place slaw in a serving dish.
