A Healthy Boost & a Recipe for Winter Cabbage and Kale Salad

Winter Cabbage & Kale Salad - Stephanie Arsenault - Global Dish
I don’t know what the weather has been like where you are, but here it’s been gross; as in arctic temperatures, tons of snow, and ice covering absolutely everything. It’s the kind of weather that inspires an impromptu move to a tropical island {who’s in?}.

It’s also the kind of weather that inspires comfort eating. Sometimes it seems like the only way to stay warm is from the inside out – with nice hot meals, steamy drinks, and tons of gooey homemade cookies. Okay, so that last one doesn’t really keep you warm, but there’s no denying that this time of year is mighty delicious in the cookie department.

Winter Cabbage & Kale Salad
Makes 6-8 servings

Ingredients:
1 small head green cabbage, cored and cut into wedges
5-6 leaves kale, ends removed
1 small red onion, peeled and quartered
2 large carrots
1 navel orange, peeled and cut into small pieces
1 mandarin orange, peeled and cut into small pieces
½ cup dried cranberries
¼ cup hemp hearts
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon honey
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Instructions:
1. Using a food processor equipped with a slicing attachment, slice the cabbage, kale, and onion. Replace the slicing attachment with the grating attachment, and grate the carrots {alternately do it all by hand! Slice thinly! Watch your fingers!}.

2. Transfer the vegetables to a large bowl, and add the orange, mandarin, cranberries, and hemp hearts.

3. In a small bowl, whisk the vinegar, oil, lemon juice, and honey. Pour this mixture over top of the salad, and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and serve.
