Cabbage and Cranberry Salad


Cabbage and Cranberry Salad


  1. Start by thinly slicing the 1/2 head of purple cabbage. You can use a sharp knife or a mandoline slicer for this. Place the sliced cabbage in a large salad bowl.
  2. Sprinkle the 1/3 cup of dried cranberries over the sliced cabbage.
  3. Add the 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds to the bowl.
  4. Crumble the 2 oz of feta cheese over the other salad ingredients. This adds a delightful creaminess and saltiness.
  5. In a separate bowl, prepare the dressing. Combine the juice of 1 orange, juice of 1/2 lemon, 1/2 tsp dried thyme, 1 tsp Dijon mustard, minced garlic cloves, and season with sea salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Slowly whisk in the 1/3 cup of avocado oil or olive oil into the dressing mixture. Continue whisking until everything is well combined and the dressing has a smooth consistency.
  7. Drizzle the prepared dressing over the salad in the bowl. You can use as much or as little dressing as you prefer.
  8. Gently toss all the salad ingredients to ensure they are well coated with the dressing.
  9. Your Cabbage and Cranberry Salad is now ready to be served. Enjoy the fresh and flavorful combination!
