Meal Prepping for the busy RN: Magic Red Cabbage Salad

in blog •  5 months ago

As a shift working nurse I have to do a lot of meal prepping to stay healthy during 12 hour shifts. Combine shift work with working all day teaching kiteboarding lessons on my days off and you have a recipe for eating out a lot if you don’t spend the time preparing.

One of my go to original recipes I like to call my Magic Red Cabbage Salad. It is super easy to make, takes zero time, and it's colors are beautiful and magical. It goes with everything from fish tacos, to grilled chicken salad, or it's nice to just eat on its own when you are on the go even. It makes your plate bright and exciting, and It’s super nutritious. One of my favorite things to do with the salad is to pack it with a meat to work and then get salad greens at the salad bar at work. I keep it healthy by adding my homemade Tahini Dressing (i'll post that recipe later)

Magic Red Cabbage Salad

Prep time 15min


1 whole Red cabbage, chopped
4 green onions, chopped

juice of 2 large fresh lemons
salt to taste

Toss all ingredients in a bowl. Refrigerate for 1 hour before consuming to allow flavors to blend.

It's like a nice, red cabbage slaw! I love red slaw on fish tacos! It's the best. Glad you're making an effort as a busy RN and teacher to make healthy meals. It's true you don't have anything unless you have your health first.

It is my loved type of salad. 1kg red cabbage is cost 5 UAH (0.16 EUR) in Ukraine.

@ourdailyboard best recipe with salad you are preparing

This evening I try to make your delicious Cabbage Salad

I love red cabbage salad, specially with the raisins! A store near me makes a similar one to you and they also add walnuts.


great idea, i'll try this. i sometimes add chia seeds for protein. but only add them fresh so they don't absorb all the liquid.

Awesome empowering recipe! :) I love red /purple cabbage too...
some of my faves!!

I thought it was a drawing of a maze.
