Shredded green cabbage, chicken, fresh herbs, and almonds are tossed with a ginger and lemon-spiked mayonnaise dressing to create a very special cabbage slaw. Enjoy it as a main course, for lunch or a light dinner.
In a large mixing bowl, toss together the cabbage, chicken, almonds, sesame seeds, basil leaves, and scallions.
In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice, mayonnaise, and ginger, Whisk in the olive oil to blend. Season the dressing with salt. Pour most of the dressing over the cabbage salad and toss to coat. Taste and adjust seasoning with more salt if desired; add the remaining dressing if you like.
Transfer the salad to your favorite salad serving bowl and serve. Refrigerate any leftovers, tightly covered, for a day or two.
