Creamy Miso Coleslaw

Perfect for barbecues and picnics! The Miso Lime Dressing really takes a standard coleslaw to the next level. It's complex, yet bright. And the sunflower seeds add the most delicious toasty finish.

SERVES 4-6

INGREDIENTS:

1 medium head Napa cabbage, shredded
2-3 medium carrots, peeled into thin ribbons
5 radishes, thinly sliced
3 scallions, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced on the diagonal
1/3 cup toasted, unsalted sunflower seeds (plus more for topping)


Miso Lime Dressing

2 Tbs. white miso
2 Tbs. lime juice
1 tsp. honey
1/2 cup avocado or coconut oil mayonnaise

DIRECTIONS:

  • Combine vegetables in a large salad bowl. Add half the dressing and toss well to coat. Taste and add more dressing as desired. (I tend to error on the side of less dressing.) Add sunflower seeds and toss once more. Top with an additional sprinkling of sunflower seeds and serve.

  • For the dressing, whisk together miso, lime juice, and honey until dissolved. Add mayonnaise and whisk again until well combined.
