Asian Cabbage Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette

Add on nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor sprinkle. One ounce of nutritional yeast contains 14 grams of protein and 79 calories and is a great alternative to animal protein.


Ingredients:

2 cups shredded green cabbage
1 cup shredded carrot
1/4 cup cucumber, sliced thinly into half moons
1 tablespoon mint leaves, freshly torn
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro leaves
2 teaspoons basil leaves, freshly torn
2 tablespoons almonds, whole
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional)

Dressing:

2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
pinch of black pepper

Directions: To make the salad, place all salad ingredients into a mixing bowl. To make the vinaigrette, whisk together ingredients in a small bowl. To serve, toss salad with vinaigrette. Finish it with a sprinkling of nutritional yeast, if using.
