Purple Cabbage salad

Purple Cabbage Salad is a quick and healthy salad. It requires only few ingredients and the best part is its very healthy. Eating these types of salad helps you to lose weight. Purple  cabbage is much more healthier than the green cabbage. I would always admire the beauty of purple cabbage but never wanted to buy it. Finally I made up my mind and decided to buy it. 

I remember eating this salad in a get together party and my husband liked it very much. That time I hadn't developed a taste for raw veggies and hence didn't like it. But now, we both enjoy salad. Hence got the recipe from our friend and made it. This time I enjoyed it:-) Try this cabbage- grapes combination. The bland- crunchy purple cabbage is very well balanced by rest of the ingredients. 

  • Purple Cabbage, finely chopped- 1 cup (heaping)
  • Fresh Grapes (seedless), chopped- 1/2 cup
  • Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp (vary accordingly)
  • Lemon juice- 1-2 tsp
  • Cilantro, chopped- 1 Tbsp
  • Salt- To taste

Wash the cabbage and cut it finely (discard the outer 2-3 leaves as they are tough).
Then cut the washed grapes into desired shape and size.

Put the chopped cabbage and grapes. Then add salt, chopped cilantro, lemon juice and pepper powder. Mix it well. Allow it to sit for 20- 25 minutes. This will help all the juices to come together. Purple Cabbage Salad is ready!!
