Red Cabbage & Kale Salad

My family absolutely loves this salad and yes  that includes my two little monkeys.  Ummm… and no, they’re not forced to eat it, they actually ask for it!

This particular salad is very healthy and super easy to make. Trust me, it will become a family favorite in your home too. 🙂

What you’ll need:

  • 4 cups sliced red cabbage
  • 4 cups finely chopped kale
  • 2oz Feta Cheese (Optional)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Oregano
  • White Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 1 Fresh Lemon

Just a couple easy steps.  Here’s how to make it:

Step 1)

First things first, you slice the cabbage and chop up the kale!  I personally slice my cabbage with a basic food processor because if I do it by hand the slices of cabbage end up more like chunks. Not good, as the kids don’t enjoy it as much.  Also, keep the blade on the slice side and try not to shred it as the cabbage salad will end up mushy.  Make sure to also finely chop up the kale.

  Tip: Since the food processor is out keep slicing!  I usually slice up the whole cabbage, chop up all the kale and then keep in in the fridge so that next time I want to make this salad the prep work is done.  – You can thank me later! 😉

 

Step 2)

Next, I pour the olive oil  over the salad, add salt, pepper and oregano.  Just a pinch or two of salt & pepper and oregano is fine but, personally, I like to go crazy with the oregano.  😉  I make sure it’s all mixed in really  well and then add a squeeze of lemon juice and some vinegar to taste.  Right before I serve the salad, I crumble a couple ounces of feta for added taste, texture and protein.  If you like, you can always add pine nuts or slivered almonds to it as well for a little crunch.

So why is this salad healthy?

Red cabbage and kale are both high in fibre, vitamin A & C and  rich sources of antioxidants. Kale is also high in iron, vitamin K and calcium.  Did you know one cup of kale has just as much calcium as a cup of milk?

Time to eat up! Enjoy!
