6 cups green cabbage, sliced in strips (about 1/2 large head of cabbage)

2 Tablespoon Sesame seeds, toasted

2 Tablespoon Peanuts

Dressing Ingredients

2 Tablespoon rice vinegar (don’t use seasoned vinegar which contains sugar)

1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil

1 Tablespoon agave nectar (can use honey instead)

1/8 Teaspoon Thai Chili Garlic Paste


Slice cabbage in strips about 3/8 inch wide, cutting strips in half crosswise if they are too long.

Mix rice vinegar, sesame oil, agave nectar, Thai chili Garlic Paste and ginger in a small jar and shake to combine. 

Toast sesame seeds about 1 minute in a small dry pan, until they start to be fragrant and slightly browned. Put cabbage strips into mixing bowl, toss well with dressing, arrange on individual serving plates and sprinkle with sesame seeds and peanuts.

Voila! We hope you’ll enjoy it as we do at the Santosa Restaurant in Phuket.
