Hand Cut Asian Cole Slaw

Hand Cut Asian Cole Slaw

I once took this dish to a party and told everyone endlessly that they had to try my Hand Cut Asian Cole Slaw. Unless pushed, many people will pass up this type of cabbage salad that we’ve all seen too many times in paper containers at our local diner.  Some of the guests were reluctant, but once they tried it, eyes began to pop and they started to ask how I became a Bravado chef.  I love it!

At the end of the evening, the hostess asked me rather sheepishly if all Cole slaw wasn’t hand cut.  I told her the obvious answer – you just never know.

Anyway, enough banter – here’s a wonderfully simple dish.


  • 1 medium size cabbage
  • 2 bunches of green onions

Chop these finely and put into a serving bowl

Now for the dressing:

  • ¾ cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup of white or white balsamic vinegar (I prefer the latter)
  • 1 tb. sugar
  • 2 tbs. Tamari soy sauce (This is a strong flavored variety; if not available, use regular soy sauce)

Put all of these ingredients in a large coffee mug and mix for about one minute with a spoon.  You want to make sure the sugar is dissolved.  Pour on the cabbage and green onions, mix well,  y voila.  After you taste this dish, you will stop worrying that cabbage is all we may have to eat if the economy doesn’t improve.
