TV Tuesday #36: The Perfect Apple Cabbage Salad to Keep Your Health On Track

 It’s no secret that a majority of people out there have one of these three New Year’s resolutions or goals.

Lead a healthier lifestyle.

Lose weight.

Eat better.

That’s where this salad comes in. It can help you fulfill each of those with a simple 2 ingredient salad and a simple vinaigrette. Eating more veggies are crucial to good health, can help you lose weight and are part of a healthy lifestyle, yet veggies seem to be less appealing in the winter. Winter vegetables don’t get the same attention that spring and summer veggies get. But there are some fabulous vegetables that are easily accessible and inexpensive all year round. And I hope that this recipe will help the simple cabbage get a little more attention and help you reach your goals.

Enter Apple Cabbage Salad.

What I truly love about this salad is that it can be as complicated or as simple as you like. If a long list of ingredients scares you away from trying a recipe, then you’re going to love this!

Try adding chopped cilantro, parsley and/or green onions. Change it up by adding dill or serve it as a meal with sliced avocado and toasted pumpkin seeds or walnuts and blue cheese. Serve it chopped up fine for an everyday type salad, or serve it layered in a bowl for a fancier affair with grilled fish or shrimp kabobs.

      It’s so nice to have something that is filling and nutritious.

    That was fast :-) I love that it will keep and you can’t substitute a lettuce that is just so empty. What fun! Now… in my experience the green cabbage can be rather spicy raw is red the same?

      Hi Teri, I don’t find it spicy at all, but that’s not to say you won’t. I don’t find the green one very spicy but I do know what you’re saying. Another option which I forgot to mention which is fun is to do it with suey choy and pears. You might try that if you find that the red cabbage is a bit spicy.

    This looks awesome, France! I’m dreaming about that grilled fish with this salad now!

      I know, right! So yummy. I which it was grilling season, but broil will just have to do! :)

      I love that it’s just as good in the winter as it is in the summer.

    Apples and cabbage go so well together…I especially like using red cabbage as it is so pretty. I think your suggestion for pumpkin seeds sounds great.

    • beyondthepeel January 14, 2013 at 6:45 pm #

      It is so pretty. The red really makes thing pop! Thanks for stopping by Karen.

    I really like the idea of adding fruit to braised cabbage… so delicious, refreshing and hydrating. And look at how pretty and colourful your presentation is. As you suggest, this type of side salad is easy to graduate to a meal by adding a protein of choice. Perfect!

    Hi France, We foodies love so many similar things! I adore red cabbage wth apples and I have a recipe for a similar salad in my new cookbook. The combination is so good together. You are such a inspiration to me France, thanks for all you do! I enjoy watching your videos.

    Just tried this a day ago. It was so good! My husband actually liked it. (I have been slowly training him to like more veggies besides potatoes) I was trying to find something for my red cabbage that I had just taken from my garden. I did add a little more to the dressing and some pecans and blue cheese. I am going to try it again, modified to be more tart for topping tacos made with my home made tomatillo verde.
