Kale Cabbage Salad with Sesame Dressing

This kale cabbage salad has more health benefits than those you’ll find in a standard iceberg lettuce salad. Cruciferous vegetables like cabbage are very rich in nutrients including vitamins C, K, E, five, carotenoids and glucosinolates. The Glucosinolates are a huge help in fighting off cancer, so I am all about eating as much cabbage, watercress, broccoli, kale and other cruciferous vegetables.

    I am certain that the dressing really makes this dish since kale can have a strong taste. Paired with sesame dressing, I bet it is delish!

      Hi Krystal, yes the dressing is key on this one. I eat a lot of cabbage but it can be a bit dry too, so finding the right dressing for this salad was key. I think the pomegranates also helped so the kale and cabbage didn’t overpower the taste. Other fruits would work well too, such as blueberries or apple slices.
