This easy crunchy cabbage salad has a double dose of folate, firstly from the white cabbage and secondly from the peanuts. Having plenty of folate is known to prevent neural tube defects and is likely to benefit fertility too! The seeds add bonus fibre as well as a range of micronutrients that support healthy cycles (more on this soon!).
If you have to time to let the cabbage sit once dressed it will become slightly tender and allow the flavours really sink in. This crunchy cabbage salad goes especially well as a side salad with grilled chicken or at a BBQ.
Make sure you use a PB that is 100% peanuts/peanut oil, this one is the best ever.
A great option when you’re told to bring a plate. This easy salad is like a modern coleslaw with a zingy dressing that goes especially well with grilled meats.
Combine the oil, vinegar and salt and whisk with a fork until combined.
Dress the cabbage and leave to sit for a few minutes. This will start to soften the cabbage.
Mix the peanut butter and soy sauce together. Add 3-5 tbsp of water as you go, until the mixture has a sauce like consistency.
You can serve the cabbage topped with seeds, cranberries and peanut butter sauce or combine them all before serving.
