Sesame Snow Pea Salad

Sesame Snow Pea Salad

Yup, I’m still on a pea kick!  I just can’t get enough of them right now.  This time I bought a bunch of snow peas at the grocery store and decided to whip up this fresh and crisp asian inspired salad.  I had this salad as a main dish but it would work great as a side too.  It was quick to throw together and so refreshing after a day out in the sun.  Perfect for summer!!!



  • 1 cup finely julianned snow peas, ends pinched off
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1/2 cup grated carrot
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, finely minced
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce or tamari (if you follow a gluten free diet make sure to use a gluten free sauce)
  • 1 tbsp ume plum vinegar (you can omit if you don’t have any on hand)
  • 3 tbsp brown rice vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp minced ginger or more to your liking
  • 1/2 tbsp raw honey or coconut nectar
  • sesame seeds to garnish


  1. In a small bowl mix together the sesame oil, soy sauce, vinegars, ginger and honey.  Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl gently toss together the snow peas, cabbage, carrot, onion and cilantro.  Add the dressing and toss one more time to combine.
  3. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve.
