If you ever thought that cabbage, fennel and carrot would make a boring low fat salad recipe, you may be forgiven.
I used to share that view.
But you may very well keep an open mind (and taste), and let yourself be tempted by its appetizing orange and herbs salad dressing.
1 small red cabbage
1 small chinese cabbage
4 celery stalks
2 small fennel, sliced
4 red radishes, sliced
1 cup of fresh basil leaves
1 cup of fresh mint leaves
1/4 cup of "pepitas"
This is what you do:
1. Cut the carrots and celery into 6 cm pieces; slice them into curls with a veggie peeler.
2. Slice the fennel and radishes, and shred the cabbages.
3. Mix the carrot and celery ribbons in a large salad bowl, and add the fennel, radish, cabbages, herbs. Set aside.
This is how you make the dressing:
Mix the following ingredients into a jar with a screw tap:
1 Tbsp parsley, finely chopped.
4 green onions, chopped.
1/2 tsp orange rind, grated.
1/3 cup of orange juice (no added suggar)
2 Tbsp raspberry vinegar
2 tsps crushed garlic
1 Tbsp peanut oil
Pour the dressing onto the salad, and toss evenly. Serve and enjoy.
