Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 6 cups raw cabbage, thinly sliced (green, red, or mixed)
  • 6 oz. match stick carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 2/3 cup shelled sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp. freshly grated ginger or 1 tsp. ginger spice

  • 2 tbsp. sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup Balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 minced garlic cloves
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large bowl combine the vegetables and sunflower seeds.  Mix well.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl combine the oils, sugar, spices, and vinegar.  Whisk together and then pour over the vegetables.
  3. Mix the slaw well to be sure that vegetables are lightly coated.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours so the flavors can blend.


  • Toss in some leftover cooked chicken breast for a more hearty salad.
  • Consider using slivered almonds or crushed walnuts instead of sunflower seeds.
