  • In a large saucepot, bring the rice and water to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover, and cook on low heat until tender, about 30 minutes; drain and set aside.

  • Heat the oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat. Add the cabbage to the pan, season with salt, and stir-fry, until the cabbage is just wilted, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.

  • Transfer the rice to a serving dish and top with the stir-fried cabbage. Pour over the dressing and toss gently to combine. Garnish with sliced scallions and serve warm.

Make Ahead

The sauce can be made up to 3 days in advance.
