Quick cabbage salad

Often I am asked by my weight loss clients for recipes that work with my diet plan. I do prefer that clients find their own recipes/food choices because everyone has different tastes and food preferences. However, I have decided to share some of my "go-to" recipes that are quick and fulfilling. Here is the first of those.

Quick cabbage salad 

Ingredients:


1/2 head green cabbage, chopped to 1/4-1/2 inches
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 carrot, grated (or chopped)
3-4 Tbsp rice wine vinegar (seasoned tastes better)
1-2 tsp sesame oil
Sliced almonds or cashew pieces

Instructions:

Mix first four ingredients in the container of choice (generally I use sealable container because the salad will stay fresh for at least 2 days in the refrigerator). Drizzle with sesame oil.

Top with nuts just before serving.

That's it. Takes about five minutes. Goes great with grilled fish or barbecued ribs. Or enjoy just solo as quick lunch. (It also is great for people who just don't do broccoli or brussel sprouts - like me - but need a dose of cruciferous veggies).
