Now that the weather is heating up it is the perfect time to get back into salads, but you don’t want to eat the same old boring salad every day. You want to get the most nutrients you can and be excited about what you’re eating. Salads are a great source of nutrition, supplying your body with plenty of minerals and vitamins essential for every process in your body, and are an easy way to eat nutrient dense foods without overloading the energy content of your meal.This gorgeous little salad will fancy up any barbecue, while helping out your liver because cabbage contains glucosinolates which stimulate liver detoxification and calcium in the cabbage and sesame seeds encourage strong bone development.I love this salad. It’s light and crunchy, full of flavour, and is both dairy and gluten free! If you are the lucky owner of a food processor, this salad will be even easier to prepare, but if you aren’t, fear not – it’s still a pretty simple dish for your repertoire.The great thing about this salad is you can always experiment with the ingredients - this is just a basic guide. Red onion, spring onion or chilli are welcome additions, while red cabbage and purple carrots will give the salad some lovely colour. It’s great to put with a homemade burger and a dollop of chilli mayo too!
