Toasted sesame cabbage salad with miso dressing

Sesame cabbage saladIt’s time for another of my favorite summer salads. A side that goes  well with most grilled meats and poultry. Even though the salad consists of only three ingredients, you can play with the colors. Choose cone cabbage in red or green and choose sesame seeds in white or black. Or both. I always toast sesame seeds on a pan over medium heat until they become fragrant. It only takes a few minutes and it brings out so much flavor.
