This simple dressing is seasoned with spicy-sweet hoisin sauce, sesame oil and sesame seeds; toss it with shredded napa cabbage and carrots for a simple Asian-inspired slaw.

Prep: 5 minutes | Total Time: 5 minutes
  • 1/3 cup
    canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons
    rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons
    hoisin sauce, (see Notes)
  • 1 tablespoon
    toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon
    toasted sesame seeds, (see Notes)
  • scallion, minced
  1. Place canola oil, vinegar, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, sesame seeds and scallion in a bowl or a jar with a tight-fitting lid; whisk or shake until well combined.



Notes: Hoisin sauce is a dark brown, thick, spicy-sweet sauce made from soybeans and a complex mix of spices. Look for it in the Asian section of your supermarket and in Asian markets. Sesame seeds can be purchased already toasted. Look for them near other Asian ingredients. Or toast your own in a small dry skillet over low heat, stirring constantly, until golden and fragrant, about 2 minutes.
