Fresh fresh fresh! This Island Dreams Salad Recipe is very fresh and light. This salad is a little like coleslaw in the sense that it has cabbage. After that, the similarities stop. It has a wonderful aroma with the sesame oil and Asian flavors. Your friends will love you when you bring this to your next picnic or pot luck.

Serves 8
Prep time 20 minutes
By Dish Ditty


  • 1/2  cup Dole Pineapple, Mango, Peach Juice
  • 1/2  cup Light Soy Sauce
  • 1/2  cup Sesame Oil
  • 1/2  cup Seasoned Rice Vinegar
  • 4-6  cups Cabbage (shredded (Napa or regular))
  • 1-2  cup Carrots (shredded)
  • 1  cup Mixed Peppers (red, yellow, orange) (thinly sliced)
  • 1  bunch Green Onions (thinly sliced)
  • 1  bunch Cilantro
  • 1/2  Large Yellow Onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1/2  cup Chinese Rice Crackers with Nuts Mix ((optional))


This recipe can be any combination of cabbage and other vegetables. The above list is just what I used when I made it and it was great. But, use what you have and don’t fret.


Step 1
In large bowl, add all the vegetables. In a separate bowl, combine the liquids: juice, soy sauce, sesame oil and rice wine vinegar. Toss the salad with the dressing and let it set for about 10 minutes. Serve.
Make it just for you!
Step 2
Notice that the dressing is all equal parts, so use 1 Tbl of each juice, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and sesame oil for your personal salad. Put whatever vegetables you have. You can use regular cabbage (what I used) or Nappa Cabbage. You can also try adding shredded broccoli, thinly sliced bok choy, or whatever you have on hand.
For a pot luck, make it in advance
Step 3
Just put the veggies in a large zip lock back and the dressing in a plastic container and toss at your party.
