Jalapeño Cabbage Salad with Honey Lime Vinaigrette









Salads get a bad reputation for being boring and bland, but just like everything.. it depends how it’s prepared. If you go to a restaraunt and order a salad, chances are there is a little bit of effort that went into it to create all the different components. If we apply the same effort to our own salads, it’s typically a win. 


I personally, love cabbage salads!

Why are cabbage salads my go to? 


Cabbage takes forever to spoil, it goes well with any dressing, any add ons, you can make it super thin, it packs more fiber which makes it more filling. Most greens you have to pick thru the bad leaves. With cabbage, you never have to do that. Maybe you’ll slice off a bad end, but it’s fresh underneath. If you’re searching for the most cost effective salad base that’s super filling, go with cabbage!


Let’s talk about this salad!


If there is one thing I love, it’s anything cabbage, and anything with a little heat. With Cinco de Mayo around the corner, I was craving a salad that would be perfect to celebrate, go great with any protein, or even use as a taco topping.. and just like that, the Jalapeno Cabbage Salad was born!







What’s great about this salad? Everything. It’s quick, easy, affordable, packs tons of flavor, fiber, it’s filling, vibrant, sweet, tangy, with a hint of heat, can easily be used on top of tacos and burgers, refreshing, and the honey lime vinaigrette just puts it over the top! Bonus, you can use this dressing for countless other dishes, because it’s just that good!
