I happened across this recipe while challenging myself to find ways to achieve 10-a-day on an NHS bursary. I already had the sesame oil and seeds and opted to use bottled lemon juice. Left out the coriander as it is the devil's parsley. Bought 600g of frozen soya beans and used half of them. My cabbage was 80p and big enough to keep half to make the recipe again. I got a 1kg bag of value carrots for 45p and used the other two thirds to make the spiced carrot and lentil soup found elsewhere on this site. If split into four portions as suggested this cost me around 50p a portion. Four makes massive portions, I'd be more inclined to suggest five or six. Nice mix of veg, ratios are good and it looks colourful and appealing. Very easy prep. I have real issues with the dressing - even being conservative with the lemon it is VERY lemon-heavy, to the point where I can't taste anything else. The salad smells strongly of toasted sesame and I'm hoping the flavours will round overnight in the fridge. I really really want to like this but it is just too lemony for me. I will make it again (not least because I have half a cabbage in the fridge that wants using) but I will be making a different dressing. I'm having this for lunch tomorrow with some baked marinated tofu.
