How to make a red cabbage salad
Red cabbage alone might not be that much appetizing, but combining it with other sweet veggies you'll create a crunchy, tangy, delicious cabbage salad.
- Shredding the veggies especially the red cabbage makes it easy to chew and brings out most nutrients.
- Use carrot to make this red cabbage salad, carrots are sweet and add crunchiness
- Bring in some citrus fruits to create a tangy flavor, your red cabbage will be delicious. Adding citrus fruits on red cabbage will help in softening the cabbage.
- To maximize the taste make sure you make a sweet-sour vinaigrette using lemon and an orange, you can add some yogurt to make it creamy.
- Add fresh herbs, they come with healing benefits as well as adding flavor
How to store your red cabbage
Well, red cabbage, unlike the green cabbage, is hard to consume it all at once! I don't why.
While choosing your red cabbage, go for a small size. And if you are like me, you can't eat the whole head, only remove the leaves one by one and use them instead of cutting the cabbage into pieces.
By removing leaves, you reduce the loss of vitamin C that's sensitive to light and also you'll keep your cabbage for days without withering.
Wrap your cabbage in a kraft paper or a towel after making your red cabbage salad and store it in your fridge.
Choose your veggies well
I understand that you're busy and you can't go to a farmer's market every other day. But, if you can just spare a day in the week to buy your veggies from local farmers, you'll notice the difference in taste and flavors.
I noticed that carrots and beets, for example, can be tasteless in a salad depending on where you buy them from.
I hope you'll enjoy this delightful red cabbage salad with beets & oranges, your healing salad that will help you lose weight as well.
