As I had already mentioned I am a diehard fan of any kinda salads these days. I prefer having a refreshing bowl of salad and a glass of fruit juice to the daily dinner menu. And huss also joins hands with me these days. So we just go chop!! chop!!
Making salads has given me the option to explore many un-tried veggies, fruits and salad dressings. I just play with all the ingredients in hand and am enjoying it.
One such veggie is the red cabbage. I have seen red cabbage many times but was not sure what to do with it and hence usually ignored it. But after I read a few articles on its usage in salad, I grabbed some when I went for my next grocery shopping.
Boiled corn kernels – ¼ cup
White cabbage(cut into chunks) – ½ cup
Cucumber(de-seeded and cut into chunks) – ¼ cup
Tomato(Medium) - 1
Carrot(julienned) – ¼ cup
Capsicum(julienned) – ¼ cup
Pitted black olives – 2 tbsp
For the Salad Dressing
Apple cider Vinegar – 1 tsp
Mayonnaise – 2 tbsp
Olive oil – 2 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Pepper – a pinch
Add all the ingredients mentioned and give it a stir.
Refreshing bowl of salad is ready.
Serve immediately. Sit back and enjoy!!!
Though the name suggests Red cabbage, I would say that the overall color of the veggie falls under Purple. So off this goes to Food Palatte Series Purple held at Torview
