Yum! I really liked this salad. I do wish however I had purple cabbage to add more colour. This salad is super easy to make, especially if you have a food processor to help you. In a pinch you could buy the package of pre-cut coleslaw.
I did not add the black sesame seeds. I cut up cashews and added to the top instead of mixing them in. You can also substitute almonds if you wish.
Shredded chicken or pork would be an excellent addition to this salad.
I found this recipe on Pinterest, which lead me to the website thekitchengirl.com.
