Citrus Red Cabbage Salad

My new favorite salad.  Mix and match–the tasty possibilities are endless!

Citrus Red Cabbage Salad

Yum!

Yum!

Ingredients:

  • Red Cabbage sliced thin
    Red cabbage is great because it stays fresh much longer than green lettuce.  If you are lazy, you don’t really have to wash it — simply peel away outside layers.  Plus it helps boost your natural cancer-fighters.
  • Carrots, grated
    Try grated beets too.  And cucumbers.  Yum!
  • Green Onions
    Chop it into small pieces and try to stay away from the white parts (unless you really like them.)
  • Pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
    Or try peanuts.
  • Lemon Juice
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Honey
    Might not be necessary if you use a beet and/or add pomegranate seeds.

Directions:
Chop cabbage and add to bowl.  Grate carrots and add.  Chop green onions and add.  Top with pepitas.  Squeeze lemon juice over salad (fresh is best).  Drizzle a little bit of olive oil, add some salt, and a drip or honey.  Serve and enjoy!
