Why We Like It

It's difficult to describe how good this salad is!  At first we questioned just throwing everything into the food processor, but it proved to be super easy and turned into one great-tasting salad!

Shred the Cabbage:

  • 1 small head of cabbage (cut into large chunks)

Set out a large bowl for the salad.  Add cabbage to a food processor or blender and blend until shredded.  Place cabbage in the large bowl.

Chop the Pistachios:

  • 3/4 cup shelled raw pistachios

Place in the food processor and pulse until chopped.  Place the pistachios in the bowl with the cabbage.

Make the Dressing:

  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice (juice from 1 lemon)
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp stone ground mustard (or mustard of your choice)
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Add to the food processor and blend until combined.  Pour over the cabbage and pistachios in the bowl.

Add the Fruit:

  • 1 pear (cut into large chunks, no need to peel)
  • 1 apple (cut into large chunks, no need to peel)

Add to the food processor and pulse just a few times.  (You want it chopped, not pureed)!  Add to the bowl with everything else and stir to combine.

Serve and enjoy!

  • 2 Tbsp parmesan cheese (shredded, OPTIONAL TOPPING)

Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top if desired.
