Winter Salad

The ingredients in this fresh light salad are available and good all winter!

Red Cabbage, cut a bit bigger than you would for a slaw

Mandarine orange, with sections separated and further cut in about 3

1/2 tart Apple, core and seeds removed, in 1/2 inch cube size pieces (I leave skin on)

Chopped Celery

Finely sliced Carrot ( using different colours is pretty)

a few Currants

juice of 1/2 Lemon

good Olive Oil

light fruity Vinegar ( Balsamic probably too heavy — I used pomegranate vinegar

salt, pepper

basel ( I used dried leaves from my kitchen plant which didn’t quite survive our vacation!)

  1. Prepare apple and carrot and pour on lemon juice and stir to prevent browning.
  2. Add celery, red cabbage, mandarine or tangerine, currants and basel
  3. Dress with oil, vinegar and salt and pepper. Toss.
  4. Serve as is or really nice with lettuce and some toasted almond slivers and toasted sunflower seeds
