Winter Chopped Salad with Ginger Citrus Dressing
This winter salad is a color fest for the eyes, a taste fest to the mouth and a great addition to the table that the whole family will enjoy. It is a hearty salad made with kale, cabbage, and carrots so you can make enough to have leftovers for the next day and it does not wilt or get mushy like regular lettuce would. In fact, this a favorite for me to bring to work because I can make it the night before pack it up and have it ready to go for the morning rush. No time lost at all. It is quite filling so I bring a large portion for lunch and it keeps me feeling fueled for my busy nurse schedule.
The ginger citrus dressing is oil-free and salt-free but has a wonderful tangy kick to it and can be made in literally two minutes. I love to add dried tart cherries to my salads to give that sweet tartness to it but if you prefer you can definitely leave it out or even add raisins instead.
This is another salad that would be great to serve at a potluck. Everyone, rawfoodie or not, enjoys a beautiful hearty salad so why not ensure that you will definitely have something to eat contributing a dish like this. Also, if your family does not eat raw with you, this is a great way to make a large portion for yourself but enough that it is part of your family’s meal too so that you are preparing all separate meals.

Love it! Went to the store and bought all of the ingredients. I added a little diced red onion, fresh spearmint leaves and sunflower seeds. Yum! A little Organic Virgin Olive oil and the juice of one of my Meyer lemons from our tree. Delish! Thanks Christine!
That’s wonderful Connie! It’s one of my faves too because it’s so hearty and so full of flavor. The addition of the red onion and mint sounds great. Nothing like having fresh lemons of the tree, right? I’m so glad you loved it! Xo
