Pickled Red Cabbage Salad

Cabbage contains insoluble fiber that can move your digestive system along, and apple cider vinegar is a medicinal food highly beneficial for digestion.  You'll be giving yourself some nice digestive flora with this dish and balance your blood sugar (a good idea after those holiday desserts). 


    •    half a head of red cabbage, shredded

    •    ¼ red onion, sliced

    •    1⁄4 to 1⁄2 cup apple cider vinegar (enough to cover cabbage)

    •    1 apple, diced

    •    ½ cup chopped walnuts

    •    fresh herbs or chopped greens of choice: arugula, parsley, baby spinach

    •    freshly ground black pepper

    1    Place shredded cabbage and red onion in a large bowl and cover with apple cider vinegar.           Soak for at least 30 minutes. 

    2    Before serving, toss cabbage and onion mixture with diced apple, walnuts, and greens.  Season with salt and pepper to taste
