This is one of my favorite chopped salad recipes, as it makes a lot and keeps well in the fridge (sans avocado). Feel free to substitute a regular orange if your market does not have a blood orange.

    I’ve noticed already that a few of your recipes feature cruciferous vegetables (those that fall in the family with broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, collards/greens, Brussels sprouts, etc). Since I read somewhere that you are a thyroid sufferer, I was a bit surprised to see them on here. I know they’re super good for you, unless you have an underactive thyroid, but I can’t find anyone who can tell me with any credibility or authority how much or how often it’s OK for hypothyroid people to eat them. Do you know? Many thanks!

    I know this is a blood orange vinaigrette, but is there another dressing you can recommend? I can’t have citrus except for lemons & limes. Thank you!

      Hi Christy,
      Do you have my ebook or print book? There is an apple cider vinaigrette as well as a raspberry vinaigrette that would work well for this salad. Hope it helps!

    What would you substitue avocado with? I have a latex allergy.

  • Nicole says

    What is the best way to incorporate the 2 week AIP and FODMAP? I love onions and garlic, however I am having reactions to them. Thanks!


  • Jessica says

    Newbie cook here! Should I toss the dressing with the cabbage and then keep it in the fridge, or store the dressing separate? Thank you!

    • Mickey Trescott says

      If you can keep it separate that would be best, but cabbage is pretty sturdy so it should keep for a day dressed. Hope it helps!

    Is there a substitute for Coconut vinegar? having difficulty finding that along with Coconut concentrate for another of your recipes. Thanks for the info.

    • Mickey Trescott says

      Hi Tiffany! Apple-cider vinegar will work fine here.
