Since I work from home I have the privilege to make my own lunches every day. I am a busy yet health conscious person, so my lunches need to be quick, yummy and always healthy. People often ask me for my salad recipes, so I decided to share one of the favorite salad recipes, that is not only delicious but also has a lot of health benefits. It’s warm, sweet, salty, rich with color, texture and flavor.
What are the Ingredients required to make the Red Cabbage/ Kale salad:
- 2 tablespoons of sunflower seeds (or chopped walnuts or almonds)
- pinch of salt (optional)
- 1/2 tablespoon of umeboshi vinegar (or balsamic vinegar)
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil (or extra-virgin olive oil)
- 2-3 cups of red cabbage and/or kale cut into thin ribbons
- 1 tablespoon of raisins (or other plump, chopped dried fruit)
- 2 to 3 tablespoons of coconut bacon (optional)
- 1-2 ounces of feta cheese (crumbled)
How to make the Red Cabbage/ Kale salad?
Prep time: 10 minutes and Cook time: 10 minutes
Roast the sunflower seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat until golden. Transfer the seeds to a plate and set aside.
Heat the coconut oil in a large skillet and saute the cabbage and kale for a minute or two until the cabbage and kale softens up a little. Then add the raisins and vinegar and stir. The cabbage and kale will continue to get more and more tender even after you remove it from the heat, so keep that in mind, and do your best to avoid overcooking it. Add the feta cheese, sunflower seeds, coconut bacon and enjoy!
Other great additions and garnishes that i’ve tried are avocado, seaweed or Dr. Schulze’s SuperFood Plus.
How to serve your delicious Red Cabbage/ Kale salad?
We recommend serving this salad in our Indigo or Ecru bowl. This hand-thrown bowl has a modern and clean shape. Its satin exterior and vivid reactive glazed interior of indigo or ecru (with blue-green undertones) shows a real lightness of touch. You can use this as a breakfast bowl, salad bowl or for side dishes. Each of these bowls has tiny variations in form and distinctive glazing effects, which give these designs an idiosyncratic beauty of their own. This bowl was created in the Czech Republic using fine stoneware, finished with matt glaze of indigo blue or ecru with blue-green undertones, fired in the kiln at 2200°F. It measures 2” in height and 6.3” in diameter.
