You can never go wrong with a side of coleslaw and this Tahini Kale Coleslaw is no different. But this one changes up the dressing with creamy tahini and ume paste- a sweet and salty fermented plum paste that offers an addictive flavor. Substitute vinegar and perhaps a touch of honey in place of the ume.
