Cabbage and Kale Slaw

I was thinking.. I guess it’s about time to post a salad recipe. After all the baking recipes, I figured I need to balance it out with a good winter salad recipe. This salad in particular I have been eating all winter long. I try my best to eat fruits and vegetables that are in season. And the winter always seems to draaaag on forever… so switching up cabbage and kale is imperative. I luckily happen to be one of those people who can eat the same thing every. single. day. Then I might get sick of it. Change to something else. But then go back to that same thing. I’m not sure if that’s a creature of habit, my OCD or what.

And lets just talk about the dressing for a second. I got this recipe from a family friend a few years ago and have been making it religiously ever since. I put that SH*T on everything!! It is sooo good. Not only for this slaw, but on any salad recipe, goes great with falafels as a dipping sauce or in a wrap. The variety of seeds add the perfect crunch and the dried cranberries a nice tart bite to the salad.
