Thai-Inspired Cabbage Salad

I am obsessed with cabbage salad at Thai restaurants and after coming home from a Thai dinner (where the salad was my entree) I made a HUGE bowl of it! Yes, obsessed!

The combinations of flavors and textures in this salad make it a perfect summer side.

Ingredients:

Red cabbage

Green Cabbage

Tomato

Carrot

Scallions

Cilantro

Mint

Cashews

Vinaigrette:

Lime

Rice Wine Vinegar

Coconut Sugar

Sesame Oil

Jalapeno

Himalayean Sea Salt

1. Thinly slice the cabbage, dice tomatoes, julienne carrots, chop herbs and combine in a BIG bowl.

2. Add lime zest and juice, coconut sugar, salt, scallions (so the citrus can take out the raw onion taste), jalapeno, and sesame oil and blend into a vinaigrette.

3. Pour vinaigrette over salad, add cashews, and combine.

Allow to marinate for developed flavors.

This was a first attempt to have cabbage salad for lunch today so I want to work on the vinaigrette to get closer to the Thai version, but it is well inspired!

Try and let me know what you think!
