Red Cabbage Salad

As everyone has noticed, the price of romaine lettuce is insulting lately (recently saw it for $8.98!). As a result I have been searching for other alternatives as a salad base since my diet revolves around high volume vegetables during a deficit. My mom showed me this recipe and I have been making it on repeat ever since!

This recipe uses red cabbage – a great source of vitamin C and K and is high in fiber. I bought a medium size red cabbage for $4.68 at my grocery store and I only used half of that to make a salad that serves 4 people.

The walnuts add healthy fats and the apples give a nice crunch and more micronutrients.

What You’ll Need:

  • Dressing:
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • 1 tbsp light mayo
    • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
    • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
    • 1 tsp grated ginger
    • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Salad:
    • 1/2 red cabbage, chopped
    • 1 apple, sliced thin
    • 1/4 cup crushed walnuts
    • 1/4 cup dried cranberries

How To Make It:

  • First prepare dressing by mixing all ingredients in a small bowl (can be refrigerated until use)
  • Next, chop your cabbage and place into a large bowl
  • Add chopped apple, walnuts and cranberries
  • Pour over dressing and mix well
  • Let sit for at least 20 minutes and enjoy!
