Cabbage Walnut Salad Recipe Is Full of Healthy Benefits

This cabbage walnut salad is so filling and delicious. Also, it is high in nutrients with a variety of vegetables and nuts in it which makes it very good for you too. The walnuts, pine nuts, and sesame seeds add a good vegan protein to it.

I have added a lemon olive oil dressing to this salad or you can also use a  Creamy Tahini Dressing

  • I am a new subscriber. In a couple of recipes, you refer to ” soaked walnuts”. What exactly is meant by “soaked walnuts?” Is this some special process? In some special juice? Please explain.

    Here in the South, I see boiled peanuts everywhere. To me, they taste terrible. Some love them. Different tastes for different folks.

    Thank you.

  • Hi Diane, I would like to purchase Stevia, & why I am writting to you is because you always mention the “sunnyDew” liquid Stevia, because it is natural. Have you heard about “Slimtevia”. It is a new make, & does not have this bitter after taste, & is made up of a few good things, but also magnesium carbonate & fruit-based crystaline fructos. Is this fructos the one that causes cancer? Arn’t carbonates bad, as they are not well absorbed & cause pockets of chalk in the body? Another thing has “SunnyDew also got that bitter after taste?
    Please answer me at my e-mail address.
