Finely chop the stem ginger.
Whisk all the dressing ingredients together, and set aside until needed.
This vinaigrette will keep for up to a week in the refrigerator.
Remove the root end of the Chinese cabbage and bok choi. Separate out the leaves. Wash and spin dry, if necessary. Finely shred the cabbages.
Wash and spin dry the mizuna.
Top and tail the carrot, peel. Cut into thin slices, then shred into a fine julienne.
Remove the tail from the red pepper, scoop out the seeds, and cut into thin matchsticks.
Trim and clean the spring onions, then cut into thin slivers.

«Instead of honey, you can sweeten the vinaigrette with the syrup from the stem ginger. Like all slaws, this Asian version will improve with time. However, it should be consumed within 3 days. Mizuna can be replaced by rocket or mustard greens.»
