Its officially salad season so I thought what better way to celebrate then by bringing you guys a new delicious salad recipe. I wanted to show you a fun twist on the traditional salad by featuring this colourful rainbow detox salad from The Healthy Grocery Girl Nutrition Plan site. I love this recipe because the base of it is cabbage instead of lettuce which gives a nice added crunch. I feel like cabbage is so underrated and I’ve been trying to add it into more and more recipes like soups, wraps, as a side (aka sauerkraut) and of course salads!
Purple or red (whatever you like to call it) cabbage is super high in antioxidants just like blueberries. I think its often overlooked but there are so many fun and easy ways to add it into your meals.
I shared this salad with my sister, mom and best-friend and they loved it. They especially loved the addition of the crunch that the cabbage and roasted chickpeas added. We enjoyed it outside on the patio for lunch and it is surprisingly so filling I couldn’t even finish mine. Also, could of been the fact that I was snacking on the chickpeas while taking the pictures… I couldn’t resist they’re so addicting.
A couple of things you can prepare ahead of time and store in your fridge are the roasted chickpeas and quinoa. I love making a huge batch of some type of grain in the beginning of the week to then add to recipes or take for lunch as a side. Click the links below to get the recipes.
