South Beach Cabbage Salad is deliciously light and flavored with sesame oil.
And it’s not your usual mayonnaise coleslaw. Made with cabbage, sesame oil, rice vinegar and onions, it has an Asian flavor.
South Beach Diet
Periodically, Don and I go on the South Beach Diet, designed by Dr. Arthur Agatston, to reset our metabolisms and lose a few pounds. The recipes are really good and I never mind eating them. Giving up cookies, though, is not my favorite part. (I do love my cookies!) I don’t get along with diets and I’m happy if I don’t GAIN weight. Don always does great. The South Beach Diet works well for him.
I like the South Beach Diet recipes because they are tasty and healthful. They use whole foods, herbs and spices, low-fat or healthier oils, and good, quality meats and vegetables. The various flavor combinations in the recipes are interesting and often new to me. This South Beach Cabbage Salad is no exception. My version of the recipe doubles the amount of oil and vinegar in the original recipe. I like it better and it’s still low cal/low fat.
This reminds me of the Asian Slaw recipe people made in the 1990s. But it’s missing the crispy Asian noodles. That would be a yummy addition, but then it wouldn’t fit the South Beach Diet.
What You Need
For this recipe you need a knife, cutting board, measuring spoons, a box grater or food processor, a wire whisk and a bowl or measuring cup. But what you really want are some wonderful pans, dishes and stemware, am I right?
