1 small head cabbage
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. rice vinegar (wine vinegar will work, too)
2 apples, Pippin or Granny Smith; organic, if possible
1 tsp sugar
1/4 cup walnuts, lightly chopped
Wash the cabbage and chop into bite-sized chunks. In a vegetable steamer or a steamer pan with holes in the bottom that sits inside another pan, steam the cabbage lightly for 5 minutes.
(If you use a vegetable steamer, put 2 inches of water in the bottom, plug it in, and turn it on. Put the cabbage in the top compartment, cover, and steam the cabbage for 5 minutes.)
(If you use a stove top steamer pan, put 2 inches of water in the bottom pan and bring the water to a boil. Add the cabbage to the top pan and cover. Steam for 5 minutes.)
Meanwhile, wash the apples well (especially if they’re not organic) and remove the core. Cut into bite-size chunks and put them in a bowl.
Chop the walnuts and add to the apples. Sprinkle the raisins over the top.
Mix the sesame oil, rice vinegar, and sugar separately in a small bowl. Combine dressing with the apples and mix well with the other ingredients, so everything get coated. Serve immediately.
