Ingredients for the Salad:

  • 5 cup shredded purple cabbage

  • 1 potato, cut into matchsticks
  • 1 scallion, cut into thin strips
  • 1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds

Ingredients for the Dressing:

  • ½ Tbsp honey
  • ½ tsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 1 ½ Tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • ¼ tsp garlic power
  • salt, to taste
  • pinch of ground cumin
  • pinch of five spice powder
