This crunchy, fresh, slaw will totally change your mind about cabbage! Bright and fresh, this salad is perfect to make in advance and enjoy all week long. The cabbage is tough and doesn’t break down so you don’t need to worry about it going soggy!

Cabbage Slaw

I feel cabbage gets bad wrap for no good reason. I find it delicious and a great ingredient to add into your salads for extra crunch! I often have either green or red cabbage in my fridge as it lasts forever and is a great ingredients for salads, stirfries or whipping into a slaw.

Crunchy Cabbage Salad

There is lots going on in this salad. Tons of texture, spices, flavours, all coming together to make a really tasty salad. I like making this on a Sunday and eating it throughout the week as a side or as a full lunch. Toss a grilled piece of chicken or fish on top and you have a full meal!

Let’s breakdown the ingredients!

  • Green Cabbage – The back bone of this salad. Crunchy, fresh, and delicious
  • Chickpeas- I love tossing in a couple handfuls of chickpeas into my salads as a pop of protein
