My Red Cabbage Salad with Walnuts and Raisins is one of my good old reliable Weight Watchers Salad Recipes that I’ve relied on for whenever I need a pretty and tasty salad in just a few minutes. You get the crunch of the fresh cabbage combined with the sweet, chewy raisins, salty blue cheese, and the nutty walnuts, all just exploding with deliciousness in each bite. This salad also offers a great way to get in some heart healthy fats from the incredibly good for you walnuts. Each nicely sized serving is just 4 Points +, and it goes great paired with variety of meals. I’ll often add some chicken, hardboiled egg whites, and a slice of crumbled bacon if I want to bulk it up and have it as an entree salad. But it’s really versatile and works well with a variety of main courses. I highly recommend giving this cabbage salad a try!
