Apple Salad is an easy side dish that can be made in less than 10 minutes. It’s raw vegan and fits into a whole food plant based diet. Plus it tastes sweet and crisp and contains just 4 healthy ingredients that can be found on-hand in many kitchens. All you need is 4 cups of chopped raw cabbage, 1 chopped apple, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, and 3 tablespoons of oil-free Sesame Ginger Dressing from Whole Foods. Toss the items into a bowl, mix, and enjoy.

Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable, like broccoli and cauliflower, with healthy nutrients including immune system boosting antioxidants and vitamin K which is helpful in blood function. It is also a great source of fiber and hydration which aids in a healthy digestive tract.

Apples provide natural sweetness to this dish. They are rich in antioxidants and vitamin C that support the immune system and can have cardiovascular benefits. Apples are also high in fiber and they are a hydrating fruit that offers benefits in digestion. Eating high fiber foods promotes a feeling of fullness which can aid in weight loss.

It’s important to use oil-free dressings in a whole food plant based diet as excess oils can lead to plaques in blood vessels and cardiovascular disease.
