Not Your Typical Caesar Salad: Red Cabbage with Creamy Lemon-Tahini Dressing & Homemade Croutons

184

Red Cabbage: Generally under appreciated and underused. And currently in season and something you’ll be able to find in stock right now.

By slicing it SUPER thinly, it can act as almost a crispy lettuce of sorts. and change up the texture and flavor of salad. Here I’ve paired this cabbage with a creamy tahini-lemon dressing that has just a bit of lemony tang. Add on some homemade croutons and fresh parmesan for the final touch. All together, it reminds me of a distant (and healthier) relative to a typical caesar salad.
