Asian, nutty slaw

I love this recipe. As the weather grows warmer I tend to prefer raw food when possible and this one hits the spot. This recipe is vegan, vegetarian, paleo, gluten free and the bomb.

Also, for all of you out there who meal prep (by the way, I salute you), this salad is perfect. Prepare it, bag it, box it and there you go...

Ingredients (makes 4 generous servings)
1/2 small red or white cabbage or a mix
1 large carrots
1 apple
Handful cashew nuts
Fresh mint, coriander and dill (a large handfull in total)
Juice of 1/2 lime
1 red chilli (optional)
To serve: 2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Salad dressing
1.5 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons The Coconut Company Organic Aminos All Purpose Sauce
1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar with Mother
1 lime (juice)
3 tablespoons good quality extra virgin oil

1. In a large mixing bowl, prep your veggies, shred by hand the cabbage (discarding the core), julienne the carrot and apple (match stick size). Add the juice of 1/2 lime to keep the apples from oxidizing.
2. Chop the cashew, fresh herbs and chili (if using). Add to the veggies.
3. Make the dressing by mixing all the ingredients.
4. To serve, add the dressing and sprinkle with sesame seeds*

*It's best to use the dressing just before you want to eat the slaw, leaving overnight for example will make the nuts and some of the veggies soggy.

How to use
In a fish taco

In any sandwich, super tasty
