Red Cabbage, Pear & Walnut Salad

red cabbage salad


The salad

Half a small red cabbage finely sliced

Slices or cubes of one large pear

½ cup of Walnuts toasted in a fry pan

½ cup of celery for extra crunch

The dressing

Juice of a lemon

Half a cup of olive oil

1 table spoon of agave or brown sugar

Salt and pepper

1 or 2 crushed cloves of garlic



* Put all dressing ingredients in a jar and shake

*  Toss all salad ingredients together, mix in dressing and serve immediately to keep the walnuts crunchy

Roast Veges

This crispy, zesty salad goes great with roast vegetables.  Try cutting kumara or pumpkin into cubes, sprinkle with salt, pepper and olive oil and bake for 30-40 minutes.  Roast beetroot goes well too and will take longer to roast than the other vegetables.
