Tangy Marinated Sesame Cabbage Salad

This Tangy Marinated Sesame Cabbage Salad is a delicious recreation of a salad I bought once from a supermarket takeout. Salads, like my Crunchy Snow Pea Salad, are one of my favorite components to a meal. I love adding bright, fresh colors and flavors to round out a plate. Disclosure: this post contains commissioned links and images.

I love salads- any and all kinds- but I don’t love using green lettuce all the time. I like to find alternative bases, so this red cabbage salad is really up my alley.

The bright color, tangy taste and satisfying crunch from the sliced almonds makes this the perfect salad to round out any kind of meal.

 

I like to serve this salad on Shabbos, during the week, and I even made it for the pre-fast meal before Tisha B’Av.

 

(You’ll notice in some of the close up pictures that I used sunflower seeds in place of almonds. That is what I had on hand at the time, but I normally use almonds, and prefer that flavor and texture. However, sunflower seeds work great if you’re dealing with nut allergies.)
