Sweet & Tangy Purple Cabbage Salad (Dairy) & Teriyaki BBQ Salmon

This post has 2 recipes in one! 🙂

We’ll begin with the cabbage salad and end with the salmon…

This is a scrumptious, addictive and beautiful purple cabbage salad.  The crunch and flavors of the ingredients blend so well together and the colors are gorgeous.  The salad would be great on any (dairy) table – for a weeknight dinner (as I served it last night), for a special brunch, or for a summer Shabbos afternoon seuda shlishis.  Keep it in mind for Shavuos as well (let’s get through Purim and Pesach first!). 

Sweet & Tangy Purple Cabbage Salad (Dairy)

In a dairy mixing bowl, combine the salad ingredients:

One bag (10 oz) shredded purple cabbage

1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and cubed

2 handfuls dried cranberries (I use natural, organic dried cranberries, to avoid all the added sugar in most brands – but you can use whichever you prefer or have on hand)

2 stalks celery, diced

About 2 handfuls honey glazed pecans halves, broken into quarters

Generous sprinkle of crumbled sheep’s milk feta cheese.

Prepare the dressing and mix together:

1/4 c. mayonnaise (I use the light/low fat one)

1 spoon (approximately a generous tsp.) dijon mustard

dash black pepper

2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

2 Tbsp. light tasting olive oil

2 Tbsp. honey

1 frozen parsley cube

Mix the dressing ingredients together well (allowing the parsley cube to defrost before dressing the salad).  Dress the salad and toss to combine.

Quick, easy, bursting with flavor and healthy! 

Make it a meal:

I served this cabbage salad last night with dinner, alongside a lentil-vegetable souphttps://michalhorowitz.com/hearty-red-lentil-vegetable-soup-parve-link-new-chanukah-shiur/

and Teriyaki BBQ Salmon.

Quick and Easy Teriyaki BBQ Salmon:

Place the salmon fillets in a foil pan or oven-safe baking dish.

Drizzle teriyaki sauce on top of the fish.  Smear BBQ sauce over the pieces.  Spritz a few dashes of lemon juice over the salmon.  Sprinkle with dried onion flakes, garlic powder and mustard powder.  Marinate 10-15 minutes. Bake on 350* about 20 minutes, till salmon reaches desired doneness.

Happy cooking and enjoy!
