Cabbage, tomato, and almond. Yeah, I know it sounds like an odd combination, but this somehow, it works beautifully! Organic green cabbage was on sale the other day, and with it being so ridiculously good for you, I stocked up a bit.
After buying the cabbage came the fun part! I had to come up with ways to use it! I threw this salad together for lunch the other day, and it is fantastic! It’s very simple, full of nutrients, and phenomenally tasty! Your body will be smiling from ear to ear if you feed it this!

This salad is fantastic! Incredibly tasty, and even more incredibly good for you! I got the idea from the following pin.
The recipe that this pin links to calls for bacon and pecorino cheese, both of which I don’t eat. So, I decided to just go with four of the given ingredients for the salad, then I added avocado, and lastly, I used my almond ginger dressing on it to make it a little snazzier! It turned out fantabulous! This makes for a super healthy and easy lunch that will leave you completely satisfied until dinner.
