Miso Ginger Edamame Slaw, a light and fresh vegan take on traditional coleslaw featuring green and red cabbage, edamame and a miso ginger dressing.

The end of summer is near, the markets are full of produce and all I can think about is trying to eat as many summer vegetables as I can before the cold weather sets in. The beginning of September is a great time for produce; still warm enough for summer favorites but the fall gourds and squash start to sneak in.

The end of summer also means enjoying the summer weather with picnics and parties. Picnics always have the best food: fresh fruit salads, cold pasta salads and refreshing cocktails.

However, they also have one of my most-hated foods: coleslaw.

As a child I HATED coleslaw. My disgust with mayonnaise knew no bounds and coleslaw was therefore high on my list of ‘no’ foods.

However, as I aged and became (hopefully) wiser I realized coleslaw does not have to be covered in mayo. Coleslaw—which is generally made from sliced cabbage, shredded carrots and tossed in a mayo-based dressing—can be even more delicious with a fresh flavorful (and mayo-free!) dressing.

Enter my favorite (and so easy!) Miso Ginger Dressing.

I’ve mentioned before on social that I’m challenged when trying to recreate my favorite Asian flavors, however I have learned to master one thing: a dressing made of miso and fresh ginger with a touch sweet and spice.

On salads, on salmon or on grilled or roasted vegetables, this spicy miso ginger dressing is one of my favorite go-to sauces and pairs perfectly with the crunch of cabbage and edamame to make this salad a flavorful summer favorite.
