A Simple Cabbage Salad

3 WWPP Posted by 4 years ago 9 Comments

I forget how much I love cabbage! For some reason it’s not one of my go to produce items. I’m trying to change and picked up a head of red cabbage this weekend.

I was planning on grilling a wedge with dinner the other night but after running out of gas I settled on this quick salad.

I love it! Both husband and child didn’t, although they did tried it. One day… one day.. :)A Simple Cabbage Salad

Here’s what I did.

  • About 2 oz non fat greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp honey (21g)
  • 1/2 tsp celery salt
  • pinch of fresh grounded black pepper
  • About 4 cups shredded cabbage (1/2 of a medium head) I used red but this would work with any.
  • 1-2 carrots cut into matchstick like pieces

Whisk the yogurt, vinegar, honey, celery salt and pepper to make make the dressing.

Toss the dressing with the cabbage and carrots or place in a lidded container…

aaaand shake!

Cover and chill for at least an hour. The longer it sits the more the cabbage will wilt, in a good way.

Serve half as a huge salad…

I used a sandwich thin, some leftover grilled chicken and the slaw. It added the perfect sweet crunch!

This is super light. I’ll give you the nutritional info for half but you can split it anyway you like.

    Looks great! We make a similar salad in our house, but with a more asian dressing (plain yoghurt, spoon of mayo, soy sauce and toaseted sesame seeds). Love it with homemade burgers. Reply

    Love this! Made it tonight with pork and my hubby loved it too! I didn't have yogurt so I used about 2 tsps of light mayo. I will definitely be buying red cabbage more often! Reply
