cabbage chopped salad with dried figs

Eat the rainbow in this cabbage chopped salad. We love good salad recipes and dried figs are so versatile you could easily eat a different kind of salad each day. Loaded with so many great and nutrient-dense ingredients including abundant greens, tomatoes, bell peppers, avocadoes, and blueberries. We toss in chickpeas for added protein. The star of this salad are our Sun-Maid and Orchard Choice California Dried Figs. Dried figs are rich in antioxidants and a variety of nutrients including potassium, magnesium, zinc, copper, and iron. They show up in the salad sliced but also in an easy salad dressing that will become a new staple. Add in even more seasonal fruits and vegetables to this chopped salad if you’d like (strawberries are great here). Depending on when you make the salad, change up the veggies based on what’s in season: add in corn, roasted zucchini and eggplant, or whatever else you have on-hand.
