Welcome to another edition of Elleโ€™s Protein Packed Anytime Salad Series! (Itโ€™s now a thing!) Today Iโ€™m going to share with you another quick and easy fresh salad that is packed with protein and has a surprise ingredient... sauerkraut!

ย 

ย Did you know that sauerkraut contains many nutrients important for optimal health?

According to Healthline.com, sauerkraut:

  • Improves your digestion
  • Boosts your immune system
  • May help you lose weight
  • Helps reduce stress and maintain brain health
  • May reduce the risk of certain cancers
  • May promote heart health
  • Contributes to stronger bones

But does it taste good in a salad? You bet!

In fact, adding some sauerkraut to my salads is my favorite way to eat it! When combined with all the salad ingredients it adds a sweet and crunchy element of deliciousness to every bite.ย 

For this recipe Iโ€™ve taken my spring mix, added some baby arugula, hard boiled egg, sauerkraut, sliced almonds, balsamic vinaigrette, and mixed in a handful of gorgeous purple Hamama Refreshing Cabbage microgreens for this easy and filling anytime salad. Sauerkraut and cabbage complement each other so well! ๐Ÿฅ—ย 

With 11.7g of protein you will not only feel full for hours, youโ€™ll also get a healthy dose of Vitamin A! Give it a try, you wonโ€™t regret it!

  • 2 cups organic spring mix
  • 1 cup organic baby Arugula
  • 2 tbsp German Style Sauerkraut
  • 1 pasture raised hard boiled egg, chopped
  • 1 handful of Hamama Refreshing Cabbage microgreens
  • 2 tbsp sliced almonds
  • 2 tbsp organic aged balsamic vinaigrette
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions:

  1. Add spring mix and baby arugula to the salad bowl.
  2. Chop hard boiled egg and add to bowl of greens.
  3. Add sauerkraut and sliced almonds
  4. Garnish with Hamama Refreshing Cabbage microgreens.

I just happen to have some saurkraut hanging out in the back of my refrigerator waiting for a recipe like this one. With 3 Trays of greens growing right now this is a No Brainer. Lunch tomorrow or a side with pork chops tonight? Thereโ€™s so many options. To make it my own I think I will top it with a mix of homemade pickled veggies. Whatever I decide is going to be a winner ๐Ÿ†!!! Thanks for the inspiration.
