Cabbage, Sesame & Almond Salad


vegan cabbage, sesame and almond salad

We love a simple, vibrant salad here and whilst I don’t eat nuts, my husband is obsessed with them, so this is his lunch from the other day.

You can in theory combine a whole myriad of different ingredients together when it comes to salad; I love to mix fruit with veggies for examples (watermelon with radish and olives for e.g)  but this one is a concoction my husband Peter came up with via experimenting with flavours and textures he likes. I don’t eat nuts so omit those.

The crunch of the seeds and nuts against the soft cabbage cut through with the tangy-ness of the avocado oil and egg-free mayo truly makes for a taste sensation.

Try it and let me know if you agree.



Serves 2 depending on portion size

  • Half a white cabbage, chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped thinly
  • 4 tbsp pickled red cabbage
  • handful of almonds, chopped
  • Drizzle of avocado oil
  • Drizzle of egg-free mayonnaise
  • handful of black and white seeds
  • sprinkle of chopped coriander
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper

Layer all the veggies on a plate/ in a bowl and scatter the sesame seeds and nuts on top. Drizzle the dressing (oil and egg-free mayo) and season if you want to.

So quick and easy and perfect as a lunch main or a side dish for supper.
