Napa Cabbage with Ginger Miso Dressing

September 21, 2010

Here is one my favorite ways to eat cabbage. I know cabbage doesn’t sound exciting and you might not associate it with being delicious, but this dish will change your mind! The dressing is a mix of miso paste and other ingredients for a slightly sweet, yet savory dressing. Make some more dressing and keep it in the fridge, it’s a great dressing to top on weeknight salads. Sick of making the same side salad everyday? Replace the mixed greens with this refreshing and crispy cabbage slaw. I like to top mine with cilantro and some peanuts for crunch, you could even top it with toasted sesame seeds. This is also a great dish to bulk up any meal, and I’m all about volume eating without the high calories.

Napa Cabbage with Ginger Miso Dressing

Serves 2


  • 1 bag of cabbage slaw
  • 2.5 tablespoons miso paste (I buy Cold Mountain ligh yellow miso, found at Whole Foods)
  • 2.5 tablespoons honey
  • 1.5 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1.5 tablespoons mustard
  • Chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons roasted peanuts
  • Cilantro


1. Combine dressing ingredients (miso paste to mustard) in a bowl and mix well. Use some chicken broth if the dressing is too thick. Toss with cabbage slaw and top with peanuts and cilantro

    Hi Andee!

    I just found your blog (through Racevine–I was looking up reviews of the Pasadena Marathon). It’s really great! You have some good-looking recipes, and all of your racing is really inspirational. Congratulations on the BQ earlier this year. 🙂 I look forward to following your running adventures!

    Also–Not to sound supercreepy, but I looked you up on Fbook to see if we had mutual runner friends, and it turns out we have Jenn W. as a common friend. Cool, right? Actually, that doesn’t make me feel any less creepy.

    Okay, long comment. Anyway, happy running!
