Here's a quickie salad ... full of crispness and colour and creamy mayonnaise . How can you beat that? And when you read this I should be in the world epicentre of cabbage - Eastern Europe! Can't wait ...
Quickie Crispy Salad
Serves 2-3 as a main
1 c finely sliced/chopped red cabbage
2 celery sticks, chopped as thinly as possible
2 small crisp apples (mine were pink), finely chopped
1/2 c fresh mayonnaise
handful of fresh chives, minced
1/2 c roasted cashews, slightly crushed
salt to taste
1. Mix everything together, except for the cashews - which are best sprinkled over after you've put the salad onto plates (otherwise they get soggy).
2. Eat, with some well-buttered bread.
And as this is a holiday post, I'm not going to cost it out ... but needless to say if you drag yourself out of bed on Saturday or Sunday, and head down to the farmers' markets, it won't cost you much. Well, this salad won't ... but I can't promise you won't spend heaps on other goodies! Or it may be a good way to use up some produce in your fridge ... that's what I did!
