Purple Power Salad

Purple Power Salad

Posted 2017-04-11 by Annalisa Brownfollow
Purple is regal, powerful and ceremonial but nothing beats the colour of this . Everyone talks about the Green revolution however, this purple salad is packed so full of nutritional value it kicks green in the guts (literally). Red cabbage and beetroot are the main ingredients and are packed full of fibre, are super rich in antioxidants, not to mention the high number of vitamins and minerals.

The inclusion of black rice - admittedly not purple - showcases shades of brown and purple hues when cooked, so not only adds more colour to the salad ensemble but also adds greater texture and punch to the salad. Family and friends will be impressed when you serve up this purple palate of ingredients.

The packed full of vitamins and nutrients.
