Red Cabbage, Pear & Walnut Salad

Red Cabbage, Pear and Walnut 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

Tasty add-ons

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.
