Red Cabbage Salad with Dates

David Prince
Yield Makes 8 servings
This salad is as healthy as it is tasty: Cabbage, oranges, and almonds contribute potassium and calcium; almonds add monounsaturated fat and phytosterols; and walnut oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Prep Time: about 15 minutes.


  • 1/2 head red cabbage (20 oz. total), finely shredded
  • 3 oranges, peeled and segmented with membranes removed and juices reserved
  • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped toasted almonds
  • 5 Medjool dates, pitted and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons walnut oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Salt
