Gingery, Crunchy Salad
I love this salad. I've loved it since the first time I tasted it at Atlas Bar way back. It's a crunchy mix of finely shredded white cabbage, red cabbage, and carrots (actually julienned). I added finely shredded sushi nori for a little more color, flavor and nutrients.
Then, warm some almonds on a hot pan, add honey and soy and gently warm through and mix.
Then, you make the dressing. The dressing's key. Finely grate ginger and a clove of garlic (garlic's optional). Add a drop of sesame oil, a dollop of soy, a pour of vegetable oil, a bit of apple cider vinegar (or acidic whatever) and honey. A good squeeze of honey. And mix well, and pour over, and toss, and...yum.
I started this blog because I'd been writing a food column in The Copenhagen Post a year's time, and was tired of being poorly payed and unrecognized for my efforts. I'd rather just put it all out there for free, and be paid with the occasional comment. So welcome, to the continuation of my food column, and to my real life kitchen.
