This bright pink cabbage salad is packed with antioxidants, flavour and bright colours to boost your mood and nutrition! There is a slight sweetness from the figs and pomegranate, and a lovely earthiness from the cabbage. High in fibre and liver-boosting nutrients, this salad is a perfect addition to any meal. Bring it to a party or potluck to add some brightness and healthy food to the table!
Pomegranate Cabbage Salad
1/2 large red cabbage, chopped
2 tbsp curly parsley, chopped
3 dried figs, sliced
1/2 small pomegranate (you can find this in the frozen section)
1 tsp nigella seeds (black cumin seeds)
Juice of 2 lemons
2 tbsp @acropolisorganics olive oil
2 tsp za’atar (blend of sumac, thyme and toasted sesame seeds)
1 tsp Himalayan salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp maple syrup
1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and set in the fridge.
2. This will taste best if you let it sit in the fridge for a couple hours… Otherwise it is just as good with crispier cabbage. Enjoy! ✌
