Hubster is working late this week, so that means I can indulge my palette… time for meatless dishes and seafood…
Red Cabbage Salad Ingredients:
shredded red cabbage, edamame, green apples, shredded carrots, sesame seeds, lemon juice, rice wine vinegar, honey, sesame oil, fresh ground sea salt, fresh cracked pepper (I used a four-color peppercorn blend)
Red Cabbage Salad Directions:
Add edamame, water and salt to saucepan and bring to boil. Simmer over medium heat for a few minutes. Remove pan from heat, and allow to cool slightly. Remove beans from pods and set aside to cool. Chop, cut or shred green apples, immediately place into lemon juice. Whisk together sesame seeds, rice wine vinegar, sesame seed oil, honey, salt & pepper. Toss together carrots, cabbage and edamame. Pour vinaigrette over cabbage salad and mix. Let rest & chill. Toss in apples just before serving. Garnish with sesame seeds.
*Serve this red cabbage salad as a side dish at a BBQ or picnic.
Non-veggie suggestion: Place layer of the red cabbage salad on plate. and add grilled ginger shrimp or chicken.
