Cabbage Salad

Cabbage--Flavor-Shades

If you do not have a great cabbage salad in your salads repertoire, this is an excellent recipe  to have. I developed this recipe after my friend made it for a BBQ party years ago. I have changed a few ingredients and ended up with this sweet, zesty, crunchy salad.

Cabbage is inexpensive and is easily available throughout the year. Cabbage is packed with nutrients and fiber. It contains significant amount of glutamine, an amino acid which has anti-inflammatory properties. Cabbage is also an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin K. Studies have shown that eating cabbage regularly can help prevent cancer. It fills you up, and is a very low calorie food.

Ingredients:

1/2 head cabbage, thinly sliced
2 med sz carrots, grated
4-5 radishes, grated
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1/2 green bell pepper, cut into matchsticks
2 tbs fresh finely minced parsley

 

Ingredients for the dressing:

1 tbs sugar
2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 tbs white wine vinegar (can also substitute with regular vinegar, or lemon juice)
1/2-1  tsp salt

 

Directions:

1. Slice cabbage into thin pieces 1-2 inches long.

2. In a large bowl, toss together all of the salad ingredients.

3.  In a small bowl combine all of the dressing ingredients, whisk it well until smooth.

4. Combine salad with prepared dressing, and toss well.
