  • ½ small red onion thinly sliced
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro

In a small bowl combine the ingredients to make the dressing, to this mixture also add in the syrup from the can of mandarin oranges and also add in 1 tablespoon of  chopped cilantro.  Mix well, then taste the flavor and season with salt and pepper if needed. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes before using it.

In a  large bowl combine the ingredients to make the salad: Green Cabbage, red cabbage, carrots, onion, jalapeno and the rest of the cilantro, season with 1 tablespoon of toasted sesame seeds, toss to combine, then top the salad with the mandarin oranges. 

Pour the dressing over the salad and serve. (I recommend you add the dressing 5 minutes before serving the salad, this time will allow the cabbage to really absorb all the flavors in the dressing!
