This basic Oriental Cabbage and Cranberry Salad Recipe tastes so amazing, it’s hard to believe that each serving is just 2 Points and that it’s so incredibly easy to make. It’s one of my go to salad recipes for when I need a quick prep side dish that doesn’t require a lot of chopping. I buy the cabbage already shredded in a package, so I just dice up some green onions, make the dressing, and let it sit in the fridge until dinner time. My kids love the flavors and don’t realize that they are eating a vegetable. Sometimes I’ll add toasted almonds or edamame for an added nutrition boost, but keep in mind that will increase the Points value. Truly delicious, my Oriental Cabbage and Cranberry Salad is a favorite around our house. Not only for it’s low Points value, but because it tastes fantastic.
