Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Cabbage: I alternate using green and purple cabbage, and buy whatever is on sale.
  • Kale: Remove the stems before chopping the kale or buy a bag of pre-cut kale and finely chop that.
  • Radishes: Peppery radishes add color and flavor.
  • Carrots: Carrots add the perfect crunch.

Additions and Substitutions

This recipe is a base, but I would love to see how you get creative and eat whatever vegetables you have available to you. Here are some suggestions for how you can change the salad up a bit.

  • Replace the crispy kale and cabbage with other greens such as lettuce, watercress, broccoli sprouts, or alfalfa sprouts. You can also include fresh herbs like cilantro, parsley, dill, or mint.
  • Get creative by adding vegetables like red onions, scallions, leeks, Brussels sprouts, snap peas, celery, cucumbers, or bell peppers.
  • Shaved almonds and hulled pumpkin or sunflower seeds are a tasty addition to the salad.
  • Top the salad with juicy grape or cherry tomatoes.
