Healthy Cabbage Salad

  • 1 small cabbage, shredded
  • 2 mid carrots, peeled and shredded
  • 1 mid apple, peeled, cored, and shredded
  • Salt, pepper, sukanat or sugar to taste
  • 1/3 long English cucumber, diced
  • 1/3 bunch cilantro
  • ½ bell pepper
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • ½ tsp honey
  • 2 tbs sesame oil
  • Sesame seeds
  • 1 lb chicken breast, diced
  • ¼ cup peanuts, slightly crushed
  • Chow Mein Noodles (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

Mix the first 3 ingredients with a little bit of salt, sukanat or sugar, and pepper in a large bowl and push with your fist for about 1 min to let cabbage juice.

Add the next 3 ingredients

Make a dressing by combining lemon juice, honey, sesame oil.  Taste it before pouring over to make sure it’s not to sweet or sour, modifying the quantity of ingredients to your taste.

Sprinkle the salad with sesame seeds

Separate the mixture in half.

Pour the first half over the salad and let stand.

Preheat a medium frying pan and grease it with sesame oil.  Sauté chicken pieces on it until browned, add crushed peanuts, mix on the pan for about 30 sec, and pour over the rest of juice/honey/oil mixture.

Serve hot chicken on top of the cabbage salad.

Sprinkle with Chow Mein Noodles if you wish.

Yummy and healthy!
