Purple Cabbage, Orange, Walnut Salad 紫卷心菜橙子核桃沙拉

Purple/red cabbage contains more iron and antioxidants than standard white cabbage. The last time I had purple cabbage was in cooked form e.g. Purple Cabbage Udon Noodles Soup, Purple Cabbage Soup. Today I am going to prepare a summer-ready raw salad with purple cabbage and orange.

This Purple Cabbage, Orange, Walnut Salad is bright and crisp. If you are firing the grill for meat or seafood, this easy-to-make purple cabbage salad will be a great side-dish accompaniment to balance the heavier-tasting grilled food/ barbecue e.g. Kale Hot Dog.
