A Colorful, Powerhouse Salad for Summer

Gorgeous photo from ZagLeft blog.
I tend to struggle with cold salads (other than basic green ones) during the summer. I like the idea in theory, but I never seem to be able to actually either pair them successfully with an appropriate protein, or feel comfortable with them standing alone. 

Until now. 

This Apple, Kale and Cabbage Salad from ZagLeft is going to be a summer staple around here - I can already tell!

It's every bit as colorful and crunchy in real life as it is in the picture, and it has such a wonderfully complex taste and texture that it stands alone perfectly. 

Packed with nutritional (and detoxifying) powerhouse ingredients like carrots, apples, kale, and cabbage it gets a sweet zing from almonds, cider vinegar, and dried cranberries. It holds well, and is very satisfying. 

If you're looking for something to spice up your lunch or keep on hand for an easy dinner on summer's hot days, may I recommend this? It's easy to make (and to make in bulk for a crowd!), and so good for you! (I consider it an added bonus that it's pretty inexpensive too.)

What's your favorite go-to salad for summer?
