Cabbage Slaw with Toasted Sesame Oil Vinaigrette | Rachel Begun, MS, RD


This light and refreshing salad is loved by all who taste it, and can be enjoyed all year round.  I particularly like it in winter when cabbage and carrots can be purchased from local farms.

It’s a staple in my house.  I make a large batch on Sunday and we eat it throughout the week with meals and even as an afternoon snack. What’s great is that the hearty cabbage, carrots and peppers don’t wilt by standing in the dressing. In fact, it tastes even better the second and third time around.

I hope it becomes a staple in your house, too!
