Making friends with salad

This is one of my favourites. It has an asian dressing and is all raw I can eat it for breakfast lunch and dinner.

1/4 savoy cabbage chopped or shredded
1/2 carrot (I like to use a mandolin for  the carrot and beetroot and create match sticks)
1/4 beetroot
1 tablespoon of pepitas
1 tablespoon of sunflower seeds
1cm of ginger finely shredded
10cm of spring onion sliced

1/4 cup of white vinegar
1/4 cup of raw sugar (dissolve in vinegar)
 1 tblsp of tamari sauce
2 tsp of sesame oil
1/2 cup of mild olive oil
1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum (optional)

Mix salad together sprinkle with seeds. Mix dressing up and drizzle over salad. Xanthan gum is often used in gluten free baking but is also great as a thickener in dressings.
