We’ve needed to add a little tang to our summer and Coco’s Cabbage Salad has been an awesome way to do that! We made it over the fourth as a compliment to our burgers and again this past weekend. Even my dad ate it, which given his proclivity to cheese sandwiches and pepsi, is a pretty large feat.
It has a vinaigrette with a nice zip to it. The toasted sesame is really evident but isn’t overwhelming. The honey makes it just sweet enough and is complimented well by the fruit.
The one difference in my recipe is that I substituted oranges for ripe nectarines and added lemon juice (1 TBS) to the dressing. I also added raisins. Make sure you pre-soak the almonds!
