My Special Fruity Cabbage Salad

Whenever we ate Fruity Cabbage Salad when I was a kid, I knew we’d have pancakes after. So I inhaled the salad just so I could start on my pancakes. However, today I had some freshly made beef broth in my fridge and figured I’d have to make some salad with that. The only other things we had in the fridge that -in my opinion- could make an interesting salad were celeriac and carrot. Lately I’ve been getting tired of carrots, so celeriac salad it was.

Then came a discussion between my boyfriend and me: me: ‘I can’t make fruit  salad because all the recipes call for bacon, and we don’t have any.’ bf: ‘Not all the recipes call for bacon, the only recipes you have a look at call for bacon.’ (he knows me and my fondness for bacon all too well) So I saw it as a challenge. I was going to make celeriac salad, that didn’t require bacon.

We both loved the end result! So here it is.

It’s cabbage time! I got a request from one of my followers to create a recipe with red cabbage, so I did. I was glad she asked me because I, too, had been wondering what to make next with this vegetable. I ended up making 2 different meals with just 1 head of cabbage, I love that! And I even have lots of leftovers to enjoy later on. This salad really gives you a spring-feeling because of the fruitiness, and it looks cheerful too! You could serve it with any protein of your choice; chicken, steak, fish, eggs. Whatever you like most, or whatever happens to be in your fridge.
