Cabbage and Carrot Summer Salad

Here’s a little something fresh to go with the summer barbecues.

cabbage and carrot summer salad

1 cabbage, shredded
1 bag of watercress, washed, ripped
1 handful of rocket, washed
3 carrots, grated
2 tbsp sesame seeds
2 oranges, peeled and ripped
juice of 1 lime
bunch of dill, chopped (approx 1 tbsp)

Basically just combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss thoroughly. Serve immediately or refrigerate for later. Toss before serving.

Be sure to shred the cabbage quite small. It’s quite tough and no fun to chew in big lumps (as I found out). The oranges I cut in half across the middle, then turned the halves inside out and ripped the sweet flesh from the skin. This I did over the bowl so the juices would drip over the salad and not go to waste.

To get a thorough mix I’d recommend adding the watercress and rocket after you’ve tossed everything else once. Once they go in the bowl gets pretty full.

Hope you like it. 🙂
