“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.”


    • ⅓ 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)
    • 1 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.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate leftover dressing for up to 5 days.
  • 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.
