Ingredients

Orange Sesame Dressing

  • Juice from 1 mandarin orange (about 1/4 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 3 tablespoons each: toasted sesame oil and avocado oil (or another light flavored oil)
  • 2 tablespoons each: rice wine vinegar, honey (or maple syrup for vegan), and soy sauce (sub coco aminos for paleo)
  • 1/2 teaspoon each: finely minced ginger and garlic

Easy Asian Coleslaw

  • 1 lb. thinly shaved cabbage (I like half purple and half green cabbage)
  • 2 carrots, sliced into thin strips (a mandolin works great for this)
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup roasted salted cashews
  • 3 mandarin oranges, peeled and segmented
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Place all the ingredients in a 2 cup glass jar and give it a good shake. It’s ready to go when it’s creamy. Note: if your tahini is very thick, mix it with the orange juice first then add the rest of the ingredients and shake.
  2. Add all the Asian coleslaw ingredients to a large salad bowl. Pour the dressing over the top and toss to coat.
