- 1/2 white cabbage finely chopped
- 3 tablespoons blueberries
- 2 handfuls of almonds
- 1 tbsp. tamari sauce
- 2 handfuls broad-leaved parsley, chopped

- 1 pinch of salt + little freshly ground pepper
- 1 teaspoon of Sukrin Gold (can be left out)
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
There are many different types of white cabbage. I love them all but especially prefer the pointy white one. In Denmark, where I am from, it is very easy to find this variation, but it has not been that easy to find it here in Spain. Not even for planting. When I saw it the other day at my vegetable market, I bought it right away and made this cabbage salad for me and Johan to enjoy as lunch.
The pointy white cabbage has a slightly milder taste and the texture is not so rough as normal white cabbage tend to be. You can make this salad with any white cabbage you have available though.
I love how this salad is very crunchy but also salty and beautiful to look at.
- Heat a pan, grate the almonds until brown and finish with adding the tamari sauce. Take the almonds from the pan once the tamari sauce is dissolved. This will be very quick.
- Mix the dressing together.
- In a bowl combine the cut white cabbage thoroughly into the dressing.
- Serve the cabbage on a big plate, sprinkle blueberries, roasted almonds and broad-leaved parsley.
Anything special to remember:
You can eat this cabbage salad as a main dish or serve it as a side dish.
Do not be fooled by the pale colour, because the cabbage stores a lot of antioxidants. Cabbage has low-calorie content and a lot of vitamin C.
Almonds are full of healthy fatty acids, vitamin E, copper, magnesium and proteins.
Blueberries contain loads of antioxidants. They are a good source of vitamin A, C and E, selenium, zinc and iron.
Apple Cider Vinegar:
Apple vinegar is an all-natural remedy with amazing effects. It benefits your digestion and strengthens your immune system. In addition, you can use apple vinegar in a variety of dishes and thus easily add an acidic element to your food.
