Winter Salad: Cabbage & Root Veggie Slaw
Root Veggie & Cabbage Slaw
Assemble enough vegetable to feed the people who will be gracing your dinner table, red and green cabbage and root vegetables: beet, parsnip, rutabaga, celeriac, carrot, purple carrot, turnip, winter storage radishes (bigger than the summer salad radishes), kohlrabi, salsify, burdock, horseradish, etc.
Fine chop red and/or green cabbage
Grate, on a metal cheese grater, root veggies. Pick root veggies you grow or can acquire locally. I use 2-4 root veggies with the chopped cabbage, choosing different root veggies with each meal.
Mix together in a bowl with the above dressing
Cover and refrigerate until meal time. I make this dish last and serve immediately with every fall and winter meal.
Optional: add a few raisins or chunks of apples, add walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds… just make it yummy for you!UPDATE:
1 cup organic extra virgin olive oil
1 cup raw apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. organic prepared mustard; preferably made with apple cider vinegar, not grain vinegar
Dash unrefined sea salt
Dash fresh pepper
Crush clove of garlic
Herbs to taste: rosemary, basil, oregano, thyme, parsley
Optional: 1 – 3 tbsp. dark maple syrup or sucanat unrefined sugar
I make this dressing in a Ball, wide mouth, quart canning jar so I always have it available for dinner salads, whatever the season.
