I enjoy creating different recipes. This week I have been playing with eating the primary colors. Yes, weird, but it make cooking and creating so much more adventures. It is not as easy as you think. I was going through the produce section of the grocery store yesterday trying to look for red vegetables to make a salad, that taste good. I came up with the Red Cabbage Salad that is sweet, crunchy, peppery from the red radish and it also has a little kick from the ginger. It is very different, almost reminds me of a coleslaw. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did. I made a big bowl and ate it all. LOL.
Red Cabbage Salad
3/4 pound red cabbage, cored and finely shredded
2 med. organic red apples, chopped
2 med. red plums, chopped
1/2 cup red bell peppers, chopped
1/2 cup red dried cranberries, diced, small
3/4 cup radishes, sliced
sea salt and pepper to taste
Add the shredded cabbage to a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and toss gently. Add dressing just before serving or you can allow this dressing to marinate through the veggies to make an awesome coleslaw.
Plum Ginger Dressing
2 large plums, pitted and chopped
2 tbsp. orange juice
1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp. organic honey
1 tbsp. sweet chili sauce
1 tsp. soy sauce, gluten free
1 tsp. fresh ginger, grated
salt to taste, optional
Add all the ingredients to a food processor and process. Drizzle over salad and serve.
