Super Food Salad

My roommate and I get fresh organic veggies delivered every two weeks to our NYC apartment. This week we got a unusually LARGE purple cabbage. I don’t cook with cabbage much, but I LVE the crunch it puts in salads. So I decided to opt for a super fall-ish super food salad. Gettin’ my greens on!

Aren’t they beautiful! Green goodness jam packed with vitamins, minerals, and pure lve… I love em’ and my body love em’ even more. HOLLA! My secret mixture? Fresh kale, chopped purple cabbage (the reason for this creation in the first place), & RAW (yes, raw) brussels sprouts! So yummy & crunchy. They great part about this – since everything is raw – you can put the dressing on it overnight and it won’t get all soggy. AMAZINGNESS! Actually, it tastes even better because all the flavors have soaked into the greens. Mmm Mmm good…

With these sorta greens and with fall in full force, I usually opt for a homemade apple cider vinaigrette dressing. Not to toot my own horn, but I NAILED the dressing. It soooo tastyyy!
