CRISPY ORIENTAL SALAD
1 head of cabbage chopped (I use half purple, half green)
4 green onions- chopped finely
2 carrots- shredded
3/4 cup raw almonds- chopped
1/4 cup raw sesame seeds
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
4 TBS lemon juice (juice of 1 large lemon)
<1/4 cup olive oil
I use light tasting oil because extra virgin is too strong for me-
also I usually don't use the full 1/4 cup)
Mix cabbage, green onions and carrots together in a bowl. Add the raw nuts and mix thoroughly. (I chop my almonds in my mini food processor).
In a separate bowl, mix the dressing ingredients together.
Pour the dressing over the salad and stir until evenly coated.
By itself- this recipe is SUPER healthy! All raw ingredients (except the oil- which probably could be ommitted if needed).
For a little more flavor- Add ORANGE PEANUT DRESSING over the top.
You will LOVE it! SO YUMMY!!!
Eat the salad by itself, or in a whole wheat pita. Add some FALAFEL to make it a more complete dinner.
I love having this in my fridge for an easy quick meal. My 5 year old eats this recipe great. My 3 year old has a hard time getting it in his mouth without it falling everywhere- but we are trying.
