Cabbage and apple salad

I have been experimenting with a few new salads of late. I wish Melbourne would join in properly and serve up some decent hot weather to go with it. I find salads an easy way to get more veggies into my diet.

This is a simple salad with a light dressing that tastes delicious. The addition of apple gives a lovely sweetness. While I use a Pink Lady as they are my favourite, you could use any apple you liked.

This recipe makes a reasonable size salad, so if you think it won’t be all eaten at the first sitting, I recommend keeping the dressing and cashews separate. Simply add them to the individual serves as needed. That way the salad will stay fresher longer when stored in the fridge.
