There are so many things to love about this salad from Zella Sage: a sweet, creamy dressing; crunchy cabbage, apple and onion; flavorful currants and pecan. Its vibrant hues make this salad a beautiful centerpiece of a healthy meal.



  • 4 cups Shredded Red Cabbage
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 1 serving apple
  • 1/2 cup Dried Black Currants
  • 1/2 cup Pecans
  • 3 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 cup Tahini
  • 3/4 cup Orange Juice
  • 4 Lemon Wedge Juice, Raw
  • 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp Honey Raw
  • 2 tbsp Garlic
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Ginger Root
  • 1 dash Pepper, Black


1 For the dressing: Combine tahini, orange and lemon juice, olive oil, honey, garlic, ginger, 1 teaspoon of salt and pepper in a blender or food processing and pulse until smooth.
2 To prepare the salad: Place strips of cabbage into a large bowl. Add salt and massage into cabbage with hands until well combined (to wilt the cabbage a bit for easier digestion). Let this sit for 5 minutes.
3 Mix the onion, apple and currants with the cabbage.
4 Pour dressing over salad and combine thoroughly. Garnish with pecans.
5 This salad is best served chilled. Store in fridge for up to 3 days.
