red cabbage & apple salad

So I noticed most of my recipes so far are just a bit on the complicated side. Except maybe the juice, cobbler, or porridge, everything so far has been complex and probably not as helpful to someone who is new to raw food. With this post I start a series of simple recipes! I want to share things that I like to make when time is of the essence, which is almost always. To be honest the very complex recipes I share are treats for me, too. I don’t make pizza every Friday night : )

With that, here is a fall salad that most everyone likes. I recently served this at a large gathering and it was gobbled up by health foodies and non health foodies a like.

Red Cabbage & Apple Salad
4 c shredded red cabbage
2 medium apples, chopped (I used gala)
1/2 c raisins
1/2 c walnuts
1/4 c apple cider vinegar
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 c honey
1/2 t salt
black pepper to taste

In a large mixing bowl toss cabbage, apples, walnuts, and raisins. Pour liquid ingredients, salt, and pepper over the cabbage mix and toss. Enjoy!

Next week: chocolate pudding.

  1. Yummy. :) I love all of the recipes on your blog. The photography is beautiful and the writing is just as decadent. I rarely comment, but I thought I’d leave one this time to let you know, I’m a reader :) Your blog is one of my favorites! Can’t wait until next week’s chocolate pudding!

    Would agave or some sort of blended date mixture be a good honey replacement? I never really felt comfortable eating honey for some reason.

  2. Lyza, awww thanks for the compliments : )

    Yes, agave or date syrup/paste would work very well for this recipe. Have you tried coconut nectar? That would work well too!

  3. Of course, they’re simple fact!!! I hope you know your blog is truly amazing and I don’t believe it’s getting the full attention it deserves.
    Oh good, lovely to know of some healthier sugars I can opt for in a recipe whenever possible!!! I haven’t tried coconut nectar! Sounds divine though–I’ll definitely look into it.
