  3. 2 cups grated or thinly sliced red cabbage and/or white cabbage
  4. 1 small cucumber, cut "en julienne"

  3. some grains, like quinoa or brown rice for additional healthy carbs
  4. if you prefer meat.. some organic chicken or wild salmon will be a good combo aswell

  1. 1/2 cup olive oil
  2. 1/4 cup rice vinegar (or apple cider)

Dressing
  1. In a blender, mix all dressing ingredients and blend until smooth. Taste, add more ginger or garlic to your liking. Maybe some hotwater if you prefer it more liquidy. Pour into a jar, it will keep in the fridge for at 2 weeks.
Salad
  1. Prepare the cabbage, squeeze the juice of 1 lemon or lime over the cabbage, some salt and a dash of olive oil. Massage cabbage and let it stand for some time. (you may prepare this a couple of hours in advance, in order for the cabbage to soften)
  2. Prepare all other veggies (except spinach) and mix everything together in a big salad bowl.
  3. mix again to get the dressing well incorporated with the salad.
  4. Add spinach and carefully mix again.
  5. Sprinkle with all toppings: spring onions, cilantro, avocado, nuts and seeds and some more dressing and voila enjoy!
Notes
  1. Great crunchy healthy raw salad to keep for your next day's lunch on the go!
  2. Also great lunch on a summer BBQ evening.
