Asian Chicken & Cabbage Salad



By Brenda Storch, Messianic Rebbetzin of
The Tabernacle

I found this recipe in Bon App├ętit Magazine last month and have eaten it almost every day since then.  It's not terribly Jewish but it's a great summer salad and you can cut the cabbage, carrots, and spinach up ahead of time because they don't get brown or soggy like regular lettuce. 


  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce (such as
    nam pla or nuoc nam) -
    I couldn't find this so I left it out.
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/2 small head of red cabbage,
    thinly sliced (about 5 cups)
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled, shredded
  • 6 scallions, whites and pale greens only, thinly sliced
  • 3 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1 cup baby spinach, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro -
    I don't like cilantro so I left it
    out too!
  • 1/4 cup chopped dry-roasted peanuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds

Cabbage Salad


Whisk chile, oil, lime juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, fish sauce, and ginger in a large bowl; season with salt. Add cabbage, carrots, scallions, chicken, spinach, and cilantro; toss to coat. Top with peanuts and sesame seeds.
