This is a yummy and very healthy salad that I’m so excited to share with you all.
I’ve always known that there are countless health benefits to red cabbage, but was never quite sure how to incorporate it into my diet.
Well, I’ve finally figured out how to do it.
With this salad.
With carrots, cucumbers and a special sweet dressing that is very easy to make, the flavor combination helps to subdue the sometimes harsh taste of cabbage.
Mountain Man and I found ourselves making this salad again, after we finished the first bowl.
Here are the steps:
I found this recipe from Beautiful on Raw and am so thankful. I followed the recipe with only two changes: I did not add cilantro and I used a nut mixture of soy nuts, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds instead of solely pumpkin seeds.

2 ½ Tbsp. freshly squeezed orange juice
