Winter Rainbow Salad


  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2-3 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated


  1. Thinly slice the cabbage, mix in a large bowl with the arugula, pumpkin seeds (or crushed almonds) and pomegranate seeds. If you are using the green apple, please cut it in thin slices and add it to the salad too.
