Cabbage is a fun vegetable. It’s part of the cruciferous family, making it extremely healthy due to its antioxidant, anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties. Its crunchy texture makes it a nice diversion from softer lettuce salads. Another nice benefit is that cabbage “keeps” in the refrigerator for at least 2 weeks. I always have one in my veggie drawer. In this recipe it’s teamed with other healthy vegetables, nuts and oils.
1 small to medium head of organic red cabbage, thinly sliced (or use half red and half green cabbage)
8 sliced organic radishes
1 grated organic carrot
3 organic green apples, diced
1 stalk organic celery, chopped
½ cup of chopped organic walnuts or pecans
Dash garlic powder
2 Tbsp. of organic olive oil
2 tsp. of organic vinegar
1 tsp. of organic lemon juice
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and allow to sit for an hour, stirring once or twice to soften cabbage.
Serve cold or at room temperature.
