Low Carbohydrate Recipe
Rice vinegar and sesame oil give this tasty coleslaw and Asian flair. Cabbage, carrots and green onions make up the vegetables while cilantro seasons.
1/3 cup seasoned rice vinegar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons sesame oil -- toasted
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 large head cabbage (about 2-1/2 pounds), thinly sliced and tough ribs discarded
1 bag shredded carrots (16 ounce)
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped (you can substitute parsley if desired)
In large bowl, use a wire whisk or a fork to mix the rice vinegar, vegetable oil, sesame oil, and salt. Add the cabbage, carrots, green onions, and cilantro; toss gently until the dressing is evenly distributed over the vegetables.
Cover tightly and refrigerate until it is time to serve.
