Beetroot and Red Cabbage Salad

Looking for a delicious summer salad? When the weather is warm and the last thing you want to do is spend time in the kitchen this is the perfect recipe. 

This is a recipe I love to make for maintaining healthy digestion. It also helps me reach my veggie/fruit goal of the day; that’s 10 for me, but even if your current goal is just eating 5 per day, this will help give you a big boost!

No time to make a healthy lunch? Then this is the perfect recipe for you! It’s ready in 15 minutes and you’ll be back at your desk in no time. 

If you plan in advance, you could get the cabbage ready the night before, or first thing in the morning…I love it when the cabbage softens from the dressing and is slightly marinated. However you decide to eat it, enjoy!

  • Pumpkin and sunflower seeds to serve (a handful or more)

  • 150g goat’s cheese


  • Put the shredded red cabbage into a bowl.
