Crunchy Cabbage Salad

I ate my teriyaki meatball bowls all week as meal prep and absolutely loved them, but I desperately need another vegetable side to balance things out. So, I whipped up a quick crunchy cabbage salad and coated it in my yummy sesame ginger dressing. It was just perfect. The crunchiness of the the cabbage, carrots, and peanuts was such a perfect contrast to the meatballs and rice.

Meal Prep It!

This salad holds up beautifully in the refrigerator, so it’s a great salad to use for meal prep! Just store the sesame ginger dressing separately from the vegetable salad mix, and add it just before serving. The salad mix (minus dressing) should stay good in the fridge for about 4-5 days.

How to Serve Crunchy Cabbage Salad

This salad makes a great side dish, but you can also turn it into a main dish by topping it with some Sticky Ginger Soy Glazed Chicken, or Sesame Tempeh. You can also add some cold noodles to this salad for extra oomph (this is the same base as my Cold Peanut Noodle Salad).

What if I Don’t Like Cilantro?

You either love or you hate cilantro. It’s all good. If you’re not a cilantro lover, just leave it out of this salad. No need to replace it with anything. :)

See the full post for the Sesame Ginger Dressing for more information on the ingredients and step by step instructions.

How to Make Crunchy Cabbage Salad – Step by Step Photos

Purple cabbage cut into quarters and shredded

First, shred your purple cabbage. You’ll want about 4 cups once shredded, which for me was half of this small head of cabbage. To shred the cabbage, first cut it into quarters, then cut the core off the quarter. Finally, cut across the quarter to shred the cabbage as finely as possible.

shredded carrot and sliced green onion

Also shred two carrots (I use a cheese grater) and slice 4 green onions.

Salad ingredients in the bowl

Pull the leaves from about ½ bunch of cilantro (about 1 cup cilantro leaves). Add the shredded cabbage, carrot, sliced green onion, cilantro leaves, and ½ cup peanuts to a large bowl.

Sesame ginger dressing ingredients in a blender

Next, make the Sesame Ginger Dressing. Add ¼ cup neutral salad oil (anything light-flavored oil like canola, peanut, grapeseed, etc.), 2 Tbsp rice vinegar, 1 Tbsp soy sauce, 1.5 Tbsp honey, ½ Tbsp tahini, ¼ tsp toasted sesame oil, 1 clove garlic (minced), and ½ Tbsp grated fresh ginger to a blender. Blend until the dressing is smooth and creamy.

Delicious Salmon Burgers

Salmon burgers are so satisfying and healthy.  Those two words don’t usually go together, but this nutrient packed burger is both good for you and just good!  It is one of the best salmon burger recipes, including restaurant versions.  The fresh taste of seafood and the tangy and bright seasonings are perfection in every hearty bite.

Making a salmon burger from scratch is easy to do and it comes together in under 30 minutes.  Make these patties in bulk and freeze them to grill later, or grill them freshly made.  Either way, the result is a must try salmon burger that is impressive and crowd-pleasing!

Ingredients in Salmon Burgers:

Most of the ingredients in these from-scratch salmon burgers are already in your pantry, spice cabinet, or refrigerator door.  They are staple ingredients that take your salmon and turn it into an insanely delicious burger.

  • Salmon: Buy a center cut filet that has skin and pin bones removed.
  • Dijon: Adds moistness and flavor.
  • Worcestershire sauce: Tangy taste and binding ingredient.
  • Green Onion: Mild onion flavor and crunchy texture.
  • Fresh dill: Adds more depth of flavor and pairs well with the salmon.
  • Lemon juice: A bit of freshness.
  • Salt and Pepper: To taste!
  • Bread crumbs: Holds the patty together while its grilling.
  • Optional: Serve with butter lettuce and tartar sauce.

How to Make Salmon Burgers from Scratch:

Salmon burgers are so fresh and satisfying and easy to make from scratch at home.  They are better than anything you can buy at a restaurant and are ready in just minutes!

  1. Prep: Preheat the grill to medium high heat. Cut the salmon into one-inch cubes.
  2. Mix ingredients: Place salmon in a food processor with dijon, Worcestershire sauce, green onion, dill, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Pulse until combined.  Meanwhile, in a medium sized bowl add the salmon and breadcrumbs then add it to the mix.
  3. Form patties: Shape meat mixture into four patties.
  4. Grill: Let patties cook on grill for 3-4 minutes on each side.
  5. Serve: Remove from grill and place on buns and desired toppings.

Tips for the Best Salmon Burgers:

Salmon is a versatile fish that goes well with both bold and subtle flavors.  So, when building your salmon burger there are many ways to get creative!

  • Toppings: Keep your burger simple or load it with flavorful toppings like avocado, tomato, onion, lettuce.
  • Sauces: Pesto, dill sauce, honey mustard, or tartar are my favorite sauces to pair with a salmon burger.
  • Serve with Burgers: Try Garlic parmesan green beans, roasted honey garlic carrots, or crispy garlic sweet potato fries.
  • Perfect Temperature: A finished salmon burger should have a golden-brown color on the outside and an opaque pink color on the inside as it cooks.  Salmon must reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees to be safe to eat.

Can Salmon Burgers Be Made Ahead?

Salmon patties are so easy to make ahead and store.  They are great way to use up any leftover salmon too!  Cover them tightly in aluminum foil or plastic wrap before storing.  Be sure to separate each patty with parchment paper so that they can easily be pulled apart to re-heat later.

  • Refrigerator: Cooked salmon patties will last for up to 4 days in the refrigerator. While raw patties should not be left in the refrigerator longer than 2 days.
  • Freezer: Both grilled and raw salmon patties can be frozen for up to 3 months.
  • Re-heat: To thaw, place in a pan on medium-high heat until heated through.
