cabbage salad

great lunch on a cold day
garnished the soup with sour cream

The first time I had a fresh cabbage salad was in the kitchen of my DF (dear friend), Anne. She is one of those moms whose children seem to magically eat vegetables.  But of course, it is not magic - just Anne, sharing her love of all things fresh and seasonal, creating a home where her children appreciate good food.  

I'm unpacking holiday decorations today and reheating leftovers for lunch.  I want a little roughage to go with it.  This salad is the perfect accompaniment to my black bean soup and really to any smokey, grilled meats or a blackened salmon.  It is crunchy, refreshing and easy to put together. You could add grated carrot to this - like a mayo-free coleslaw. 

shred to your size preference
black bean soup was just as
yummy as day 1
