When I'm craving salad, but am out of greens, I turn to some variation on a slaw. Tonight's version was a colorful concoction of red cabbage, carrots and parsley.
Scurvy-Fighting Slaw for a Snow Day
serves about 4
- 1 quarter of a head of red cabbage, sliced thin or shredded
- 3 carrots, peeled and grated
- 3 large handfuls of parsley leaves, large stems removed
- 1 orange
- olive oil
- red wine vinegar
- salt and pepper
Delicious, easy and healthful. A great companion to the corn and clam chowder we had for supper. Were I to serve this salad to "company" I would slightly increase the fussy factor and shred the cabbage very fine and pulled all the parsley into individual leaflets.
