Cabbage Salad

This is a go to side dish for me, it’s easy, no cooking required & I think it’s delicious!

I came across a cabbage salad, with toasted ramen & almonds (original recipe was something like this) back in college, and loved it… So this recipe has been like 7 years in the making. As with all my recipes, I’m not so much for measuring as I am for tasting and trying, so use this as a guide, rather than strict directions.

Cabbage Salad Bowl

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 head medium cabbage, shredded (I like purple cabbage)
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and sliced (or about 20 baby carrots will work)
  • 2-3 scallions, sliced thinly
  • 2 oz. sliced almonds (toasted)

Dressing: 

  • 2 T sesame (or olive) oil
  • 1/8 cup rice vinegar ( I love vinegar so go heavy handed here)
  • 1 packet sugar substitute (such as Stevia)
  • Adobo Seasoning

Directions:

  •  Mix cabbage, scallions, carrots together in large bowl.
  • Make Dressing –  In separate small bowl mix oil, vinegar, sugar substitute and Adobo seasoning to taste (about a teaspoon). Stir and refrigerate.
  • To serve, add almonds, Pour dressing mixture over salad and stir .
