  • Brief Description

    A typical salad of cabbage and veggies are topped with purple-hued rice noodles, whose color comes from the natural dye of red cabbage juice. The flavorful dressing is only part of the equation. This recipe gets its name from the drink Cirilian Sour Paste, served in Aunt Z’s tavern on the Colossus in Star Wars Resistance. When it comes to serving, that’s when the magic happens. Squeezing a lime on top not only packs a sour punch, but it’s also interactive in that it magically changes the color of the salad before your eyes.
