Red Cabbage Salad (Dairy, Gluten and Refined Sugar Free)

This salad has lots of crunch and can easily be adapted using your favourite vegetables.  I used an orange pepper since it was on hand, but also enjoy this salad with celery.  Cabbage is one of the few vegetables high in vitamin E.  It improves mental function and is an excellent remedy for anemia.

  • 1 small head of red cabbage cored and shredded
  • 1/2 diced orange pepper or 3 stalks diced celery
  • 2/3 cup balsamic or red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds (optional)

  1. In a large bowl combine cabbage, orange pepper and sunflower seeds.
  2. In a small bowl combine all remaining ingredients and then blend into cabbage mixture.
  3. Let sit for at least 1 hour for vegetables to absorb the dressing.

* depending on size of cabbage you may need to increase the amount of dressing for the salad
