Asian orange and sesame salad

Asian orange and sesame salad

One of the greatest things about living in a multicultural society is the cultural influences and diversity of food. As you know, I particularly love Asian food. I remember once travelling around the UK and absolutely craving Vietnamese or Thai food. Happily, it is so common for us that we use the basis of Asian cooking and make our own!

This salad is so refreshing, crunchy, fresh and delicious!


1/2 cabbage

2 cups shredded baby spinach (or kale)

3 spring onions, finely sliced

1 carrot, julienned/grated

1-2 radishes, julienned

1 cup cashews

1 cup mint leaves

2 oranges, peeled, de-seeded and cut into segments

plus juice of 1 orange

1 T tamari

1 T sesame oil

1 garlic clove

2 T sesame seeds

2 T fried shallots


Slice salad ingredients, toss salad together and top with a dressing mixture of the orange juice, sesame oil, tamari and garlic. Sprinkle sesame seeds and shallots over the top. Enjoy!
