Super Healthy Kale and Red Cabbage Salad

I’m a big fan of a big crunchy veg based salad like this kale and red cabbage salad; packed with nutritious veggies, quick to make and filling because I added quinoa (you could add brown rice or pulses if you prefer). And I absolutely love adding lots of textures and flavours which really makes a salad something special. Here’s why I love all the ingredients in this one;
Red cabbage – a deliciously crunchy, healthy and economical base.
Kale – super healthy and really tasty sautéed in some sesame oil.
Quinoa – protein packed and filling.
Seeds and nuts – for the all important crunch
Extras –  I love adding some flavour packed extras like olives, capers, gherkins and sundried tomatoes.

This is big and filling enough on its own but it’s also delicious as part of a big mezze with flatbreads, hummus, guacamole and my red pepper dip.

    I absolutely love the red cabbage, but not a massive kale fan…however, this looks so delicious, I wouldn’t mind clearing this bowl in one go! 😉 x
