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.

 

Directions:

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.
