Summer Garden- Cabbage Medicine salad

I LOVE CABBAGE !!!  

I also love turmeric- and loving it more every day.

It tastes great and adds a nice flavor to many dishes…..PLUS it is a TREMENDOUS NATURAL ANIT-INFLAMMATORY.

 

This recipe ( and many variations) allows me to enjoy the brassicas I love so much and eat anti-inflammatory food and herbs throughout the day.

In it’s most simple form this salad is :

CABBAGE –  ONIONS  – GARLIC  + Raw Apple Cider vinegar

Ad some balck pepper, organic mustard, sea salt……

Add some turmeric powder (or ground fresh) and it become even more medicinal

Add fresh ginger……The crooks at the F& DA might want to label and control it.

 

RECIPE:

1 head of Cabbage- shredded to your taste

1 bunch red onions (I like the color) [Yellow- ok too]

1/2 cup Raw apple cider vinegar ( I use BRAGGS)

DRESSING-

1/2 tbs fresh ground pepper

2-4 tbs mustard ( to taste- and choose a fun /favorite mustard)

2 tbs  Olive oil (EVOO)

1-3 tbs Turmeric ( use less if fresh root) This is to taste

Mix in a bottle and shake vigourously or blend to emulsify- pour over the veggiues and set in fridge for 4 or more hours.

Options-

raw garlic, beets, young turnips, 2 kinds of cabbage or kale or greens

-lemon juice, snap peas, or fresh beans, ???????

SERVING ??

Serve over rice, or as a side to a spicy chili.

There are as many variations as there are mouths and tongues and Veggies at the Farmers Market.
