Easy Cabbage Salad
I love a good easy salad recipe. We have so many on our blog because cabbage is great to make any time of year. I love that cabbage doesn’t get soggy quickly and it makes for the perfect salad to make when you are hosting outside parties, potlucks or if you need to prep in advance. Prepare the salad the day before, just add the dressing and mix before serving guests. #Winner
I really like adding red cabbage to salads. This particular salad was inspired by our homemade coleslaw and a creamy cabbage corn salad. It’s the perfect balance of flavors, crispiness and it’s so quick to throw together.
Did you know there are so many benefits to eating red cabbage? My favorite is going to have to be that it contains antioxidants that help to lessen aging signs and keeps the skin looking healthy from the amounts of vitamin A. That combined with all of the benefits of white cabbage, broccoli, tomatoes, and cucumbers and you have yourself a mighty healthy recipe. I’ll take it!
How to cut cabbage?
The secret to cutting cabbage for salad is shredding the cabbage with a Mandoline Slicer. You can adjust the thickness of the slice and then lock it on the slicer and all of your pieces will be the same in size. Perfect to use for any kind of salad that requires thin slices. I use it for all my salads.
