Whole Foods gets all the credit for this post because I stole the idea right out of their recipe book. As a former team member at Whole Foods this summer, I scowered the salad and platter bars basically every day admiring their many healthy creations (although not EVERYTHING there is the absolute healthiest- which I think is a common misnomer). Anyways, for all you cabbage lovers out there- this one’s for you! Cabbage crunch is the name of this little treat that involves some of my favorite ingredients- red cabbage, green onion, slivered almonds, and VINEGAR! It’s super simple to make and I just used my own measurements since the ingredients are the only things provided on the tag. This recipe is a must-make though and I’m glad I was able to perfect it before coming back to school in a place where the nearest Whole Foods is 45 minutes away! That being said, there is a lot of room to play around with this recipe so throw in whatever you wish (like more vinegar if you’re me!) Bon appetit!
Cabbage Crunch (adapated from Whole Foods)
1 head red cabbage, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons toasted almond slivers
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons EVOO
2 tablespoons honey
Toast sesame seeds and almonds in small skillet. Combine all ingredients through onions in a large bowl. Whisk together the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl and pour over cabbage. For best results, let sit in refrigerator for a couple hours or overnight.
