In case you didn’t already know, raw cabbage is a great source of Vitamin C, fiber, potassium and other nutrients that cause our bodies to produce enzymes which block new cancer cell growth (awesome!), and at only about 25 calories per cup, it truly is a superfood. I’m doing my part to eat more cabbage and for lunch today I made a super delicious, simple Asian Salad. I’ve eaten a million of these at different restaurants over the years, but finally decided to make my own. Lemme tell ya, I’ve been missing out! Such a perfect mid-day snack or appetizer, here’s the recipe:
- 1 cup white cabbage, shredded
- 1 large carrot, grated
- 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoons agave nectar
- 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
Mix them all together, chill, and eat. Feel free to add bean sprouts, fresh soy beans, or mandarin oranges if you’re feeling crazy- but the most important ingredient is the Sesame Oil, that’s what gives it the familiar taste of a good Asian Salad.
