I recently had some spicy chicken teriyaki. It came with a side of what was just cabbage in some clear liquid. I've not had luck identifying it online, any idea what it may have been?

It was a bit tangy and sweet, but nicely balanced out the spicy teriyaki. It wasn't overly drenched in liquid, but there was a fair amount. Again, I didn't see any other vegetables. It wasn't creamy at all, like a coleslaw.

The cabbage was still mostly crunchy.

They may be similar but that question specifically mentions celery and this one says it was cabbage only. I'm not convinced that they are the same. This is also a side dish and the other was an appetizer... and that question is about Chinese cuisine and this one is about Japanese. – Catija Jan 28 at 21:53

Sounds like a basic Asian Cabbage Slaw. Sometimes the dressing is made with rice vinegar, lemon juice maybe a little sesame oil to make a vinaigrette. I'm sure the dressing is dependent on the restaurant. where did you get it?

That sounds about right. I'll have to search for that.... Bellevue, WA – Chad Sep 26 '12 at 3:47

Was the cabbage translucent? If so, this sounds like Japanese amazu pickled cabbage.

Not particularly translucent, but thanks for the idea. – Chad Oct 5 '12 at 17:17
