This is a simple and colorful dish to add to your table. Whether you are serving just your household or a large crowd, this is easily prepared in minutes and is beautiful with the vibrant purple cabbage and green from the apple. Cabbage is part of the brassica family, which is well known for its anti-cancer properties. Also, the amino acid L-glutamine is richly found in cabbage. L-glutamine is prescribed regularly in my clinic in diet and supplement form due to its healing properties in the intestinal tract.
1 medium purple cabbage, cut into quarters, remove stem and shave into thin slice
2 medium apples, Granny Smith or the apple of your choice, cored and cut into thin slices
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons organic cider vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, peel removed and grated
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons honey
¼ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- Place the cabbage and apple in a large salad bowl and set aside.
