Cabbage Salad

Jump to Comments

March always brings great buys on green cabbage at the grocery store. I love cabbage and look forward to this opportunity to have cabbage a lot! One of the ways my family likes cabbage the best is in this yummy salad. This is so easy and fast. You can make it in a pinch for a side dish.

Cabbage Salad

1/2 head of green cabbage, washed and chopped into bite size pieces

1/4 c. chopped red onion

1 can mandarin oranges, drained and loosely chopped

1/2 c. raw almonds, toasted* and chopped

1/2 c. raw sunflower seeds, toasted*


1 tbsp. olive oil

1 tbsp. rice vinegar

2 tsp. pure maple syrup

After chopping the cabbage, onion, and oranges, combine them in a bowl and stir. In a separate small bowl mix the dressing ingredients together and pour over the cabbage mixture. Mix together well and top with the almonds and seeds. If you don’t eat this right away, the dressing starts to soften the cabbage, which is okay and makes for great leftovers.

*A super easy way to toast raw nuts and seeds is to put them in a nonstick pan or small cast iron pan and turn the heat to medium.  Shake the pan every once in a while until you see them start to turn light brown. It won’t take long(maybe 5 min.) so don’t leave them. Wait for them to cool before trying to chop them up.
