Sesame Red Cabbage Salad (Low carb)

This super simple salad boasts massive flavours all thanks to toasted sesame oil. With a little rice wine vinegar added for acidity and some sesame seeds for texture and aesthetics, you will love this crunchy slaw on the side of chicken, pork or fish. I stirred through finely chopped coriander and mint which brings another fresh dimension of flavour which I know you will love! Just in time for BBQs this weekend as a lovely salad on the side.
