I love cabbage.  Pickled, fried, rolled around beef and rice.  I also love it thinly shredded in a salad.  Tonight, I chose a head of ruby red cabbage to make this quick and simple salad.  Just a few ingredients.  Mixed together.  Perfectly seasoned.  You will have a delicious, filling, bright cabbage salad.  Use as a side, on top of tacos or burgers, or added to spring rolls.

Quick and Simple Asian Cabbage Salad


1 small head red cabbage, cored and thinly sliced
1 lime, juiced
1/2 teaspoons of salt
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
2 teaspoons sesame oil


1.  Mix together cabbage, lime juice and salt.  Let stand for about 10 minutes.

2.  Stir in cilantro and sesame oil.  Serve immediately.  Optional: red pepper flakes, chopped roasted peanuts, sliced red onion.

We enjoyed this salad along with pulled pork and chunky guacamole.
