With the weather warming up, salads are back on the menu! Here at KOJA HQ we are huge fans of making a big salad to keep you going for a couple of lunches and dinners during the week. The downside is the dreaded soggy lettuce effect of 2nd day salad, eggghhh we hear you! This salad uses a cabbage base and will keep crisp and crunchy for a few days in the fridge. It’s easy to make in less than 10 minutes and is great for mid-week lunches or as a side salad with a simple & healthy dinner.
3 cups wombok cabbage (or white cabbage if you can’t find wombok)
1 head raw broccoli
2 spring onions
Handful of mint leaves
KOJA Chilli Coconut & Pecan
2 Tbs Sesame Oil
1 Tbs Honey (or vegan alternative)
1 Tbs Tamari (and a little extra for the noodles)
Soak the vermicelli noodles according to packet instructions. Drain away any water and add to a large bowl. Add a dash of tamari and stir through the noodles.
Finely slice wombok cabbage, spring onion and broccoli florets. Use the broccoli stalk in finely sliced pieces to add texture – no need to throw it away!
Roughly chop the mint leaves
Add all of the above ingredients to the noodles and gently mix together.
In a small bowl, mix the dressing ingredients together. Add a touch of water to achieve a runny consistency.
To serve: Pour the dressing over the salad and top with KOJA Chilli Coconut & Pecan for your daily dose. Note: If you’re making a single serve, store the dressing separately and only dress what you’re going to eat that day. The un-dressed salad will keep up to 3 or 4 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
