Cabbage, Feta, Bell Pepper, and Green Onion Salad

Inspired by this Cabbage and Feta Salad, I’ve created my own go-to, easy, delicious salad! Cabbage, Feta, Bell Pepper, and Green Onion Salad

This has become something of a staple for me – I’ll make it for weeks and weeks in a row, sometimes. It’s easy to make, especially if you buy items pre-cut. It’s delicious. It’s (relatively) healthy, and filling if you eat enough of it. I love taking a large container of it into work. It keeps well for about 4-5 days, depending on the cheese.

Cabbage and black bean saladThe Fresh Fork Market season has started! That means we’re getting all sorts of delicious, fresh vegetables and cheeses… which also means we have to figure out what to do with them.

An entire cabbage, shredded, is too much for just coleslaw, so I went looking for another dish to make. I came across this recipe for Crispy Black Bean Tacos with Feta Cheese from Epicurious. Since we also had black beans and green onions from Fresh Fork, it seemed like a no-brainer.

I went for a salad rather than a taco since salads are way easier to eat at work. I’m very pleased with how it turned out – not only delicious, but also very filling!
