I have a really simple recipe for you today and it’s an excellent way to ensure you’re eating vegetables and fruit. Plus it’s full of antioxidants – those awesome free-radical fighting molecules that have been shown to protect you from numerous diseases, including cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s.

The other thing that I love about this red cabbage salad recipe is that you can put it together in under ten minutes, and it’s the perfect side dish to make when you have half a red cabbage in your fridge, as often happens to me when I buy red cabbage for one recipe. Plus it’s super colorful and pretty, and since we eat with our eyes, well…need I explain more?! Let’s get to it!

  1. Such a pretty salad-always love purple and green together! Red cabbage is one of my favorite ways to get some cruciferous veggies-I always add it to my salads whenever I have it, plus love the addition of snap peas {my kids love these!}, blueberries, and mint. Yum! Pinning and making ASAP!

  2. I love that this is so simple + quick to make! I have blueberries and green cabbage + everything else! Will have to try this out soon! <3
