Serves 4 to 6 servings


For the Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

  • 1/4 cup unseasoned rice vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon sriracha sauce (optional)

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

  • 1 large garlic clove, minced (about 1 1/2 teaspoons)

For the Slaw:

  • 1 small head shredded green or white cabbage (about 1 quart)

  • 2 large carrots, peeled and grated on the large holes of a box grater (about 2 cups)

  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

  • 1 cup cooked and shelled edamame

  • 2 medium scallions, finely sliced on a sharp bias

  • 1/2 cup chopped or whole salted peanuts

  • 1/2 cup loosely packed chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a medium bowl. Stir until the peanut butter is dissolved. Set aside.

  2. Combine all of the slaw ingredients in a large bowl. Add the dressing and toss well. Let sit at least ten minutes so the vegetables have a chance to soak up the dressing. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt or Sriracha sauce if necessary. Serve cold.
