The secret is in the dressing!
I use my own home made almond butter in the dressing which gives it a delicate divine flavor but you can use peanut butter if that is all you have handy. I will be adding my almond butter recipe soon for you to try and make yourself.
This is a delicious refreshing simple vegan salad with an amazing and unique home made easy dressing! Full of fresh healthy ingredients.
You will be hooked on this one!
1 medium white cabbage
1 ½ cups of walnuts
½ cup of sesame seeds
½ juice of a fresh lemon
¼ cup soya sauce
¼ cup olive oil
½ teaspoon sesame oil
2 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon home made almond butter or can be substituted for peanut butter
Slice the cabbage thinly. Discard the hard center part. Set sliced cabbage aside in bowl.
In a dry non stick pan on medium heat (no oil) heat the walnuts and sesame seeds turning them for a few minutes until very slightly browned, but not burned. You might want to heat the sesame seeds separately since they will brown quicker due to their small size.
Chop the walnuts very small after they are cooled off. I do this by laying them on a sheet of parchment paper, covering with another sheet of parchment paper and crushing them with a rolling pin. Set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together all the other ingredients to make the dressing, until mixed well. Add to the cabbage, mix and and set aside for half and hour.
Add the browned crushed nuts and toss just before serving!
Delicious, Vegan and Healthy! You will get many compliments for this salad, you can be sure of that!
