Healthy Purple Cabbage salad with Almonds - Crunchy, healthy, sweet and so easy to make (only 10 minutes!). This salad recipe has only 4 main ingredients and is full of great fresh flavors thanks to delicious Maple Vinegar Salad Dressing.
A few years ago when I heard word cabbage I instantly thought about coleslaw, sauerkraut, or my mom's famous chicken soup (yes, with cabbage, so delicious!).
Well, and that’s pretty much it for my knowledge of cabbage recipes. But since then, things have changed, I now love to add it to many of my salads.
The cabbage adds a lovely crunch and bulk to salads, which is exactly what I’m looking for when preparing one super large bowl of salad.
In addition, it can be stored in the refrigerator for a very long time and nothing will happen to it. So perfect ingredient to have always on hand and limit your trips to the store.
This vibrant salad proves that cabbage can be bright and beautiful to use in salads. Especially red cabbage.
I love this recipe for beautiful color, texture, and of course so easy to make. I hope you’ll love it too!
