purple cabbage

We affectionately call this salad “Purplicious” because it really is purple and delicious, and loved by all in our families. We love it for a quick and healthy side dish that can be whipped up in less than a half hour. It’s great last-minute and even better the next day for lunch. Top it with a grilled chicken breast or pork loin and boom, dinner is done.


4 cups thinly sliced purple cabbage, firmly packed (about ½ head of medium cabbage)

1 cup finely chopped fresh pineapple

1 medium carrot, peeled and grated (1 cup)

1/4 cup fresh lime juice (2 limes)

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 cup chopped cilantro



Combine cabbage, pineapple, carrots, lime juice, extra-virgin olive oil, maple syrup, sea salt, and cilantro in a medium bowl. Stir together until well mixed. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Season with more lime juice and sea salt to taste if desired.
