Hawaiin-Style Sesame Cabbage Salad

Hawaiian-Style Sesame Cabbage Salad

The noodles in this recipe add crunch, texture, and sweetness to this terrifically versatile Hawaiian-style slaw. As the salad sits and the noodles soak up the intensely flavorful sesame dressing, they soften slightly, so be sure to serve this salad straightaway.Helen Rosner

Thank you to all our readers who submitted recipes to our Home Cook Challenge: Barbecue Sides contest. We're pleased to announce the winning recipe by John Buckley, who will be receiving a $500 gift card to Sur La Table. John's winning salad is a harmonious take on a classic dish: Hawaii's famous ramen-cabbage salad, a crunchy, sesame-spiked slaw whose clean, sweet-tart flavor is a perfect counterpoint to a main course of hearty grilled meats.
