Cabbage is an incredibly versatile cruciferous vegetable. They are typically grown in the cooler months and have been mainstay vegetable in many traditional cuisines.
Cabbage is an excellent source of vitamin C and K as well as various B vitamins and is rich in phosphorrus, magnesium, calcium and selenium. Part of what makes cabbage a staple in many kitchens is the economical factor.
According to a report by the Economic Research Service at the U.S Department of Agriculture (USDA), cabbage is the second most economical vegetable in terms of price per cup. (source) This relatively low economic cost of cabbage makes this vegetable a nutritional bargain. Just in case you’re curious what beat cabbage on the frugal totem pole – it’s the humble potatoes! No wonder cabbage and potatoes are my two favorite foods.
Avocado Cabbage Slaw
The avocados make this slaw so creamy and rich in texture – you’ll forget you’re eating a crunchy vegetable. The grape tomatoes add a nice change of flavor and texture to this slaw. And the parsley dressing in your favorite oil and Apple Cider Vinegar is simply divine.
We love this slaw as a side salad next to some roast chicken or wild salmon but I bet it would be amazing in tacos too. The only modification I would make if you’re adding it to tacos or sandwiches is dice the tomatoes and the avocados smaller.
Helpful Tips for this Avocado Cabbage Slaw:
- You will need 1/2 small cabbage head to make 4 cups of shredded cabbage. I prefer to run the cabbage through my food processor for thin strips but it can also be finely chopped with a sharp knife.
- For the most amazing results, please refrain from using bagged cabbage slaw. Fresh is always best!
- We love this as a salad to healthy protein such as roast chicken and grilled salmon. If you’re using this as slaw in tacos or sandwiches, cut the avocados and tomatoes smaller.
- Feel free to swap cilantro for parsley if using this slaw in tacos.
Tools Used in This Recipe:
- Food Processor – makes shredding of the cabbage so easy and convenient and the thin, uniform strips of cabbage are perfect!
- Sharp knife – for those tomatoes and if you’re opting to cut the cabbage by hand.
- Avocado Slicer – I love using a good ol’ knife but this tool has great reviews. You’ll need to make cuts across though for diced avocado.
