Oxheart Cabbage Coleslaw with Apple and Mango

0
Oxheart cabbage is the one with the pointy head and my absolute favorite cabbage. Actually it’s the only cabbage I buy on a regular basis. It has succulent leaves making it excellent choice for salads like coleslaw and is everyone’s darling for sauerkraut. More often than not, I add it broth-based soups, let it wilt a little, then serve it up. Officially the season for oxheart cabbage is from May...

A salad is the perfect way to showcase heirloom carrots in all their beauty. They come in an amazing array of colors -- deep purple, yellow, red, white, peach and of course orange. I couldn't resist when I saw the beautiful rainbow of carrots at the farmers market. Shaving them into paper-thin ribbons is a great way to showcase their gorgeous colors. They make a stunning salad -- just...

I love the thought of zucchini noodles but I can’t convince my favorite Schwabe of their worthiness. He claims that no zucchini compares to those fresh from the farmers market in France. He may have a point. Or perhaps it is just the surrounding atmosphere that makes them taste so much more….well flavorful. Cucumber Noodle Salad - a new way to enjoy cucumber So I relegate to using my spiralizer mainly...

Ever since I discovered how delicious fennel is I have been adding it my salads pretty much every other day. Okay, it’s not a secret that I absolutely love and live on bowls of raw yumminess. I’ll never tire of salads, especially with fruit in them - a little obsession of mine. Apples and fennel. A classic combo - they pair well together raw, baked, and EVEN juiced! This salad...

I only really discovered kohlrabi a few years–emmm, it’s a vegetable. Heh, I was confused — It only sounded like a foreign word to me. It’s a German term meaning ”cabbage turnip”. Okay, doesn’t sound great and it’s not a looker, but it taste pretty amazing! It took me ages before I actually bought one since I had absolutely no idea what to do with it. So my kohlrabi...

Cucumbers add crunch and a refreshing flavor to all sorts of salads. This cool eastern-influenced cucumber salad makes for a tasty and refreshing side dish, one with a little kick to it. Choose a milder green chile or skip it all together if you prefer to keep things really cool. If you choose to use the seedless kind, like persian or japanese cucumbers then be sure to let the salad...

Spicy Tomato Salad

About half the size of a roma tomato, egg-shaped baby roma tomatoes are deliciously sweet with a more intense flavor and aroma than the larger variety. They have an elongated "egg" type shape and a deep color. I love these and I adore this tomato salad. First of all, it's delicious. The chili pepper really brings out the sweetness of the tomatoes and makes it really something worth getting excited...

Japanese Daikon Carrot Coleslaw

This Japanese style coleslaw is seriously simple and seriously delicious. Daikon and carrot pair fabulously together, especially in a tasty Asian-style dressing. Okay, I am biased, I love most any foods with an Asian flair. So if you haven't already done so, give daikon a try. It's delicious. If you are not already familiar, daikon is a long white vegetable from the radish family. It’s similar in appearance to fresh...

Coleslaw with Cranberries and Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

The word coleslaw is derived from the Dutch term “koolsla”, meaning cabbage salad. “Kool” meaning cabbage and “sla” the Dutch abbreviation for “salade”. In the late seventeenth, New York was flooded with Dutch settlers and with them, they brought their recipe for chilled cabbage salad, which today is a mixture of the shredded vegetables with mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar and other seasonings. Eventually, both words were anglicized into “coleslaw”. Though, the...
