Sweet potatoes can be eaten raw as well as cooked. Here they star in a sprightly slaw, a quick and light accompaniment for simple poached or steamed fish.

Make Ahead Tip: Refrigerate dressing and slaw separately for up to 1 day; toss together just before serving.


  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups coarsely grated peeled sweet potato (about 1 large)
  • 3 cups thinly shredded napa or savoy cabbage
  • 4 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon finely minced serrano or jalapeño pepper with seeds (optional)


Whisk the canola oil, lime juice, sesame oil and salt in a large bowl. Add the sweet potato, cabbage, scallions and serrano (or jalapeño), if using; toss to combine. Serve immediately.
