Cabbage is packed with vitamin C that serves many important roles in the body. For example, it’s needed to make collagen the most abundant protein in the body. Collagen gives structure and flexibility to the skin and is critical for proper functioning of bones, muscles and blood vessels.

Apple Cider Vinegar has many health benefits too, including weight loss, can lower cholesterol levels, flush toxins from your body, and reduce symptoms of heartburn.

Tip: When preparing the dressing it’s important to whisk in the oil very slowly.

8 people


1.8 to 10 cups green cabbage, chopped (1/2 a large head)
2.3 green onions, sliced (white part with a little green part)
3.2 teaspoons black sesame seeds, toasted
4.2 tablespoons shaved almonds, toasted (optional)


1.6 tablespoons (3 oz) Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar (add more to taste)
2.2 tablespoons raw organic honey
3.2 tablespoons organic olive oil
4.Salt and pepper to taste



Prepare the Dressing.

In a medium bowl, add Apple Cider Vinegar and honey and whisk until smooth. Slowly add the oil, a little bit at a time and whisk until all is emulsified. Set aside until salad is assembled.


Prep the Veggies

Slice/chop cabbage and green onion.

Combine in a large bowl, set aside until salad is assembled.


Toast Nuts.

Place black sesame seeds in a small skillet or pan. Black sesame seeds are un-toasted and since the color is so dark it’s hard to tell when they have browned enough. They’re usually toasted just right when they start popping and jumping on a hot skillet. Remove pan from burner and transfer seeds to a plate.

You can use the same pan to toast the shaved almonds, just make sure it’s not too hot to touch. Spread the almonds in a single layer in the skillet. Heat over medium heat, stirring or tossing frequently until they are golden brown and begin to smell nutty. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate.


Combine All Ingredients.

Once the nuts cool (which is pretty quickly) add the nuts to the bowl of shaved/chopped cabbage and green onions, then add the reserved dressing and mix well.


Don't omit the black sesame seeds as they add a lot of flavor and a little extra protein to the dish.
Also this will prepare a lot of slaw which can be eaten alone as a snack, as a side dish, or topping for sandwiches and hotdogs.
