Cabbage salad with a Wafu dressing

I used a fabulous purple Japanese cabbage that I found on Ocado from the vegetable producer, Natoora. However, this dressing works with any type of soft cabbage.


1 head soft cabbage, such as Japanese, Savoy, Pointed

2 spring onions, cut into small rounds


2 tbsp vegetable oil

2 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp rice vinegar

4 tsp caster sugar

1 1/2 tsp black sesame seeds (white are fine)

1 tsp Nori sprinkles (optional)


  • Put all the dressing ingredients in a glass jar and shake well until combined.

  • Take all the leaves off the cabbage, wash well and steam for a few minutes. (I do this in a microwave)

  • Take the cabbage out and lay onto your serving dish. 

  • Leave the leaves to dry for a few mins.

  • Dress the salad around 20 mins before you want to serve it.
