BRAAI DAY #5: CABBAGE, SPROUT & CARROT SLAW WITH HONEY-LIME DRESSING

Ring the changes when you braai this month and nix that boring green salad or heavy mayonnaise-laden coleslaw for this Asian-inspired cabbage, sprout and carrot slaw with toasted sesame seeds. Fresh and light, it has loads of marvellous crunch. A sweet and sour lime and honey dressing completes the picture. While you’re at it, why not have some culinary fun and dish individual portions up in Asian takeaway containers.
