A reposting of a winter favorite from February 18th 2011! My how the time flies...
In addition to helping me fight my winter vegetable blues, this salad is also incredibly easy, insanely inexpensive and can feed the masses. I made this salad twice before and I was not able to get any pictures because my friends and I ate it so quickly. Any asian style dressing will work for this salad. I used an organic sesame ginger. You can also add grilled chicken to the salad to up the protein but the vegetarian version is just as delicious.
Cabbage Salad with Carrots, Apples and Peanuts
1 head green cabbage
3 apples (any kind you prefer)
3 carrots, shredded
1 cup of roasted unsalted peanuts
1/4 cup fresh chopped scallion
Sesame ginger salad dressing
Grilled chicken (optional)
What makes this bite better?
During the winter months it is often difficult to get your daily filling of veggies, especially if you are a locavore. This salad is a great way to up your fruit and veggie intake for the day while still being low in fat. Also, cabbage is an under appreciated veggie loaded with Vitamin C, Vitamin K and fiber!
