  • 1 tsp (5 mL) ginger, finely minced
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) garlic, minced
  • 4 cups (1 L) savoy cabbage, cored and shredded, about a 1/2 head
  • 3 cups (750 mL) baby spinach
  • 4 green onions, finely sliced
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) toasted sesame seeds
  • 4 medium roasted beets
  • 2 tbsp (30mL) crumbled blue cheese


  1. Whisk together vinegar, oil, soy sauce, hot pepper jelly, ginger and garlic. Toss with shredded cabbage, spinach, green onions and sesame seeds.
  2. Cut roasted beets into wedges and gently toss with salad. Sprinkle blue cheese over and serve immediately.
