Cabbage Salad Recipe

Cabbage Salad Recipe

 

I get asked all the time for quick, easy, healthy recipes. I love making a big salad to have ready in the fridge to eat during the week. My hubby made this cabbage salad recipe, he calls it Cabbage Crunch, and it’s pretty darn yummy. I have to admit, the first time he made it I was watching him like a hawk and questioning his every move…however he handled it graciously. I added the carrots for a bit of color. 🙂

Cabbage is great for B vitamins like folate, vitamin B1 (thiamin), B5 (pyridoxine), and B6 (pantothenic acid) that are essential for energy. Antioxidants such as Vitamins A and C and phytonutrients like thiocyantes, zeaxanthin, lutein, isothiocyanates, and sulforaphane are abundant in cabbage, and have the ability to stimulate detoxifying enzymes that may protect against breast, colon, and prostate cancers.

And off course this cabbage salad is gluten free, dairy free, soy free, low glycemic, tastes great and is good for you and super easy & quick to prepare. Who could ask for more?!

Prep time: 10 Minutes (woohoo!)

 Ingredients

  • 1 large head of cabbage shredded
  • 2 carrots shredded
  • 1 small jicama shredded
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon fajita seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon diced jalapeno peppers
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • sliced almonds – sprinkle a small handful on top of your salad when served

Put all ingredients in a large bowl and mix it up! Another thing I will admit…I wasn’t sure about the last three ingredients for this cabbage salad recipe. Turns out they only add a slight hint flavor. Some bites are like a party in your mouth because you taste the sweet with a hint of spicy. This recipe will be great without the last 3 ingredients too. 😉

This can be a side salad or you can add a serving of chicken to make this a meal. For my plant-based peeps add a serving of beans, bean noodles, or eat with a Veggie Burger to make this a great meal.
