Texture makes the salad

 

This sweet crispy cabbage salad with lime dressing has a lot of textures for such a simple side salad. The grapes gently burst in your mouth, the red onion has a softer bite to it. Whilst the cabbage is crunchy to the max!

If like me you are always in a hurry and you own a food processor, then this salad will come together in mere minutes. I shredded both the cabbage and onion and it took seconds, but you can make this salad by hand. Just make sure you slice the cabbage and onion as evenly as you can. Cut the grapes in half and shred fresh parsley then toss it all together.

 

Zingy lime dressing

 



This is another super simple component to put together, just zest and juice a lime throw in a little extra virgin olive oil (regular olive oil will also work) and a tiny touch of salt and pepper brings it all together. If you feel you want it a little bit sweeter then I would suggest adding a teaspoon of maple syrup and see how you get on, but I find the grapes sweeten it enough for me.

Supersizing the salad

 

I like this as a side salad I find it freshens up any dish it is served with and would be a great salad to serve at a Barbecue, but it could be served as a main if you added your favourite protein to it. I would stick to lighter seafood, poultry or tofu, keep it light so as not to weigh the salad down.
