Purple/red cabbage contains more iron and antioxidants than standard white cabbage. The last time I had purple cabbage was in cooked form e.g. Purple Cabbage Udon Noodles Soup, Purple Cabbage Soup. Today I am going to prepare a summer-ready raw salad with purple cabbage and orange.
This Purple Cabbage, Orange, Walnut Salad is bright and crisp. If you are firing the grill for meat or seafood, this easy-to-make purple cabbage salad will be a great side-dish accompaniment to balance the heavier-tasting grilled food/ barbecue e.g. Kale Hot Dog.
- 1 small organic purple cabbage, thinly shredded/julienned,
- 1 orange, skin remove, thinly slice the flesh , reserve some juice (for salad dressing)
