Burnin’ Love BBQ’s  Sesame-Cilantro Slaw

Serves 2           Active Time: 10 min.   Total Time: 40 min.


3/4 cup cabbage, shredded
2 Tbs each, shredded carrot/purple cabbage, optional
1 Tbs rice wine vinegar (unseasoned)
2 Tbs Best Foods mayonnaise
2 tsp sugar substitute
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped


In a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mayo, sugar sub, and pepper until smooth. Add cabbage and cilantro, and toss to coat well.

Chill 20 minutes.

In the meantime, toast sesame seeds in a dry pan over medium heat, until golden and aromatic. Set aside to cool.

When ready to served, give the slaw a stir, spoon onto plates (or sandwiches) and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
