This recipe is a lightened up macro friendly version of what my mom would make when I was a kid. I always snuck off with the raw cabbage while she was putting it through the food processor because oddly raw cabbage is one of my favorites. 

This salad makes me think of summer so what perfect timing to share it – the middle of Alaska’s winter.  

This Easy Cabbage Salad comes together in minutes and is even good leftover!

While this salad is high in fat from the oils and nuts, it’s a great way to get in lots of veggies. “How do I get in more fat,” is a common question I receive on Instagram. This recipe can definitely help that.

I usually suggest getting in fats via: 

  • nuts
  • oils and dressings 
  • avocado
  • butter 
  • fish 
  • full fat Greek Yogurt (I prefer Fage)
  • eggs 

Need to get more fat in your diet? Add this quick and easy salad to your week.

Top your salad with some juicy grilled chicken or my favorite Air Fryer Blackened Chicken for added protein.

  1. Hi Danielle,
    This recipe sounds amazing and reminds me of a dish I used to make years ago with broccoli slaw and ramen noodles. Do you have any recommendations for swapping out the sweetener? I don’t use any type of sweetener outside of maple syrup or honey, but I know they add a lot of carbs. Please let me know what you’d suggest.
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Nora! I’ve only ever used regular sugar and sweeteners in this recipe but you could definitely swap with honey or syrup. I would start with 1 tbsp and see if that’s enough. You could also try date paste.
