Today I want to share a recipe for a lovely, Easy and Healthy Lunch Box Salad. Cabbage is tasty. Cabbage is beautiful and Cabbage is healthy.
I have sometimes found it difficult to stay healthy during long working days and often I have forgotten to bring lunch with me – resulting in sudden blood sugar drops, and far to many falafels or expensive cafe lunches. One of the things that I have promised myself for a more balanced future is to become better in and learn enjoy to prepare food for the road. Lunch and snacks. I´m slowly getting there and I´m really learning to enjoy preparing healthy food for the road.
This one serves 4 or you can save it in the fridge up to 5 days and bring it with you several days in a row, but with different toppings.
- 500g Pointed cabbage
- 3-4 Carrots
- 2 big Beetroots
- 1 Red Onion
- a handful fresh herbs (I used thyme and mint leaves)
- 0,5 dl Apple-cider vinegar
- 0,5 dl olive oil
- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon honey (preferbly organic and unheated)
Grate the cabbage, carrots, beetroots and onion in a food processor or a salad maker or chop them more rough if you prefer that. Mix the ingredients for the dressing in a glass or a shaker and pour over the salad. Add your desired topping and serve.
In this version I topped the Salad with:
- Chick peas
- Feta cheese
- a few slices Apples
- Sunflower seeds
You can basically top your salad with whatever you like. Why not mix a delicious piece of smoked salmon with avocado and linseeds or your favorite piece of meet with apple and spinach. Only your fantasy and tastebuds sets the limit.
Enjoy the making of and the taste of this Healthy and Easy Lunch Box Salad.
