Vegan Thai Cabbage Salad with Creamy Cilantro Dressing
Hello & Happy Monday!!
with warmer weather, comes light and brighter eats! I don’t know about you, but the weather dictates what I’m craving. When the temps rise I gravitate towards smoothies and salads. The only struggle with salads is that most people find them not filling or get bored or C, all of the above. That being said, it’s imperative to mix it up and try new combinations and try more filling ingredients.
One of my favorite ways to bulk up a salad, is cabbage! At least a few times a week you’ll find me making a cabbage salad was they are just my go to. Cabbage is cheap, it outlives any salad greens, and is more filling than any typical green salad.

It’s quick easy, affordable, packs multiple flavors, it’s sweet, spicy, refreshing from the mint, it has texture, the dressing is packed with spinach and avocado, it’s perfect for any season, it’s gorgeous, vibrant, you could pack on even more veggies, could pair well with any protein, and is just so good!
