Recipe: Bryant Terry’s Napa Cabbage & Kale Coleslaw with Creamy Miso-Ginger Dressing
This modern take on classic coleslaw has everything you want in a nutrient-rich summer salad — lots of greens. The combination of mildly flavored Napa cabbage, earthy lacinato kale, delicate green peas, and crunchy green beans makes you feel like you have fulfilled your nutritional requirements for the next three days after having a serving or two.
The pièce de résistance of this dish, though, is the tangy, flavor-filled miso, ginger, and silken tofu-based dressing. It goes perfectly with this slaw, but you can enjoy it on almost any green salad, with grilled asparagus, or on top of quinoa or any other summer dish.
Serve this coleslaw as a side or piled high on a barbecue sandwich during your post-4th of July cookouts this summer (see my Open-Faced BBQ Tempeh Sandwich in Vegan Soul Kitchen).
