Easy Asian Inspired Slaw Salad


Vibrant, delicious and a total winner! Just look at the colour on it. This recipe was inspired by a post that was floating around the glorious online world of Pinterest. The recipes on there never fail to inspire me. This salad is full of colour and, most importantly, flavour, to be enjoyed as a light lunch or as a side salad over dinner. Add some chicken pieces or prawns for some extra protein to really make a meal of it.

Ingredients                                                                                                                                  Serves: 1
For the salad:                                                               
- 1 Carrot, matchstick thin pieces                                
- 1 red cabbage leaf, matchstick thin pieces                
- Handful of spinach. matchstick thin pieces      
- Handful of fresh chopped coriander         

For the dressing:                                                                                     
- 1/2 Tbsp Sesame seed oil 
- 1/2 Tbsp Olive oil  
- 1 Tsp Rice wine vinegar
- 1 Tsp soy sauce
- Pinch of brown sugar
- Salt and Pepper
- Sesame seeds (optional)  

Step 1 - If unlike me, you have already chopped veg or a nifty gadget that does all the work for you this sept will take you no time. However, for you guys who are taking things back to basics simply chop the carrot, red cabbage and spinach into matchstick sized pieces, Be prepared, this can take a while.  

Step 2 - Once all chopped place in a bowl. It's now time to start making the dressing, in a small bowl add the sesame seed oil, olive oil, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar and salt and pepper and whisk together. 

Step 3 - Pour the dressing over the salad and then mix together. Chop up the coriander and further mix it in. 

Step 4 - Last but not least, add some sesame seeds on top to make it look prettier (optional).


Until next time,
