  1. In a large bowl, whisk together honey, soy sauce, sesame oil and ginger. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add cabbage, carrots, peanuts and black sesame seeds. Toss until dressing coats vegetables.
  3. Refrigerate salad for about 2 hours before serving to let the flavors develop.

Chef Tips

As with all cabbage salads and slaws, this one improves with time, so leave it to sit for a couple of hours before serving. Or make a batch for the fridge where it will keep for up to three days.

If you have tree nut allergies, pass on the peanuts and sesame, and substitute toasted sunflower seeds or toasted pepitas if they work for you.
