This salad is everything a salad should be. Flavorful, fresh, full of vitamin’s and minerals and containing enough different textures to keep you interested and happy all the way through!
1 medium red cabbage, chopped into bite size pieces
1 medium green cabbage, chopped into bite size pieces
2-3 apples, cubed
1 medium beet, peeled and cubed
3-4 kale leaves, stem removed and torn into bite size pieces
1/2 c. raw walnuts
1/2 c. raw apple cider vinegar
1/2 c. good quality olive oil
1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
2 tsp sea salt
1/4 c. maple syrup
1/4 c. lemon juice
Combine the first 6 ingredients together in a large bowl. Combine dressing ingredients in a smaller bowl, taste and adjust seasoning as necessary. Toss dressing and salad together, making sure to use just enough dressing that it coats everything well but doesn’t drown the salad.
This salad can be served immediately – but it just seems to get better with time and will hold well for at least a couple of days.
