Eat more Cabbage!

I’m going to take a break from going green to go RED… with cabbage that is!  I’ve been eating this salad all summer and I think it’s too good to keep to myself.



Red Cabbage  – 6 cups of cabbage julienned thin… think coleslaw size!

Corn – one can or 2 ears of corn ( if canned get it with as little added salt and sugar as possible)

Cilantro – 1/4 cup minced

Lemon juice- 3 Tablespoons (about 1/2 a lemon)

Olive oil – 3 Tablespoons

Salt – 1/2 teaspoon


I love this salad because the colors are beautiful and the taste is fresh and delicious.  Now these amounts are how I like the salad.  That’s the best part of this salad, it’s easy to customize!  Do a lot of tasting to decide how you like it 🙂  If you aren’t a fan of cilantro leave it out and it will still be tasty 🙂 Sometimes I add sesame seeds or hemp seeds, as you can see in the picture.



Julienne the cabbage, mince the cilantro and rinse or cut the corn off the cob.

Put the cabbage in a mixing bowl and add the salt and the olive oil.  Throughly massage with your hands, you should feel the cabbage wilt a bit.  Add the lemon juice and keep massaging.  Taste the cabbage and adjust the seasonings to your taste.  Add the corn and cilantro and taste again.
