Red Cabbage, Herbs, Cranberries & Hazelnut Salad.

Looking for a bone loving, scrumptious salad, then look no further than my Red Cabbage,  Cucumber, green Herbs, cranberries and Hazel nut salad. However if you suffer from Hypothyroidism or Hashimoto’s, then you should be avoiding goiters found in raw cruciferous vegetables such as the red cabbage. Otherwise this is a combination of herbs, and nuts that are loaded with minerals that helps regulate your hormones, and support your bone health, the added hazel nuts contain a mineral called Boron which is supportive of bone health, also nuts are considered proteins so this salad has all the Macro Nutrients you need for a summer lunch or an Iftar meal.

Ingredients:

  1. Half a Red Cabbage shredded.
  2. 2 Organic Cucumbers.
  3. A bunch of Cilantro ‘green fresh coriander’.
  4. A bunch of fresh Mint.
  5. A bunch of Parsley.
  6. 2 sprigs of green onions.
  7. A handful of Cranberries.
  8. A handful of Hazel nuts.

For the dressing, I always use 2 tbs of non pasteurised apple cider vinegar, 2 tbs of cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, 1 lemon, and for an added zing, I add 1 tsp Sumak and 1 tsp mustard seeds.

Cut, shred and assemble all ingredients, then add the dressing just before serving.
