How to make a non-salad-lover into a salad-lover: woo them with wonderful dressings. No two ways about it. Also: cut the leaves up small, so the dressing doesn’t get all over their face.
This recipe is an adaptation of several recipes – two by Chad Sarno, and one by Vanessa on GLiving. Chad Sarno calls it “Trio of Shaved Cabbages with Sweet Sesame Vinaigrette” – it really can be a simple salad or an elegant party dish. I just use what I have on hand, and the vinaigrette is never the same twice, but this always turns out so tasty. You can also add sliced baby bok choy, hemp seeds, etc. Hope you enjoy it!
My girlfriend swears that her fiance asked her to marry him because of this sauce. Maybe you will have similar results, maybe not, but I guarantee that you will find this sauce unbelievably tasty!
We use it for everything – as a dip, a dressing, a pasta sauce, etc. But our favorite way to use it is as a sauce for salad rolls – use a lettuce wrapper, and load up the ripe avocado, sliced red peppers, julienned carrots, sundried tomatoes, red onion, sprouts, etc., then slather on a generous portion of this sauce, roll it all up and serve.
This sauce keeps well for about a week, so you can easily double or triple the recipe if you find you like it.
