  • 1/2 small red cabbage
  • 1 papaya
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of fish sauce
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon of Muscovado sugar


  • Handful of cashew nuts, roughly chopped

  • 2 tablespoons of chilli oil
  • 1 teaspoon of black sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of torn Thai basil
  • 1 tablespoon of roughly chopped coriander

Start by thinly slicing the cabbage, carrots and papaya.

Combine the dressing ingredients and whisk until the sugar has dissolved and pour over the vegetables and leave to marinate for at least 20 minutes.

In the meantime: preheat the chilli oil in a small frying pan until hot and add the cashews and cook until turning golden.

Add the garlic and ginger and fry for another minute until crispy, pour into a bowl and leave to cool.

Pour over the salad, stir in the herbs and sprinkle the sesame seeds over the top – serve.
