However, if you have a cabbage on hand and find yourself without pac choi, you can substitute one for the other and have a perfectly delicious slaw.
Fresh Asian Slaw with Pac Choi
1 # pac choi (the full sized stuff, not the baby), sliced thin (food processors make this so easy)
1 carrot, sliced thin
5 scallions, sliced
1 C microgreens, pea shoots, or bean sprouts
2/3 C oil (whatever type you like)
1/3 C cane sugar
1/3 C rice vinegar
1 tsp. toasted sesame oil
2 tsp tamari
1 packet ramen (any flavor because you are throwing it out)
1/2 C slivered almonds
1/2 C sunflower kernels (optional)
1. Toss the salad ingredients
2. Mix all the dressing ingredients in a pint mason jar and shake well.
3. Preheat the oven to 450. Break up the ramen. Toast the ramen, almonds, and sunflower seeds in the oven for 5 minutes or so, stirring half way, until fragrant and lightly browned. Let cool.
Now all your ingredients are ready. Just before serving, toss everything together.
