03 Oct 2017 Jeweled Cabbage Salad
This is a fantastic salad for your Shabbos, Yom Tov, or anytime table. It’s parve, so it can be served alongside any meal. It’s also super easy to throw together, and almost addictively delicious. The colors are gorgeous and the pomegranate arils add a fantastic burst of flavor, as well as a beautiful hue – hence the name of the salad, after the pomegranate arils, “Jeweled Cabbage Salad.”
This recipe was inspired by two other cabbage salads we recently had. One which I made over Rosh Hashana (which had diced apples and honey in it), and one which we tasted at someone else’s house (which had nuts, scallions, and terra stix). Hence, this salad was born. With some tweaking and testing (my family has eaten it for literally 3 out of 4 days in a row – with the only day off being Yom Kippur!), and pomegranate seeds added, the salad was found to be just right 🙂
Jeweled Cabbage Salad
In a bowl, mix together:
One bag (16oz) coleslaw; a few handfuls of honey-glazed slivered almonds; chopped scallions; 1 granny smith apple, peeled and diced; and the seeds of 1 pomegranate (approximately 1 cup of pomegranate seeds).
In a pyrex measuring cup, prepare the dressing:
1/4 c. light tasting olive oil, 1/4 c. honey, 2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar, 2 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce, sprinkle black pepper. Mix all together.
Dress the salad right before serving, and toss well, so the salad is nicely dressed. Immediately before serving the salad, add a few handfuls of Terra Stix (Original Flavor).
Enjoy! And don’t forget to check out this other delicious salad:
And don’t underestimate this salad, as the homemade Creamy Balsamic Dressing is wonderful and super flavorful (and can be used on any salad of your choice):
