sweet cabbage and spinach sandwich salad

Downshifting from the holiday opulence and overload requires strong will power - I am halfway there, making my favorite veggie slaw, but now I'm about to run to the market for a little brie and crusty bread to make a nice little hot sandwich:)

This is a wonderful stuffing for pita sandwiches, with turkey or without, and I've even used it in boneless chicken rollups, but most of the time I eat it as is. Crunchy, fresh, and sweet with the flavor of fresh cabbage, it's a dandy lunch or light supper - or for breakfast, inside a fluffy omelet. What a terrific way to christen my new food processor!

This makes around 4 1/2 cups of salad.

To make:

2 cups shredded fresh cabbage
2 cups finely sliced fresh de-stemmed spinach
a handful of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1/2 cup sliced scallion greens
2 T. minced parsley or celery
3 T. red wine vinegar
1 T. olive oil
1 t. oregano or basil, dried or fresh
1/2 t. kosher salt
lots of freshly ground pepper

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and toss gently. Store in a tightly closed container in the fridge - it should keep fresh for four days.

Almost the end of 2012 - can you believe it?

YUM! What a spectacular salad ... and just perfect after all the sweet treats and heavy food.

Happy, happy new year, Katrina! I will continue to look forward to your wonderful recipes and photos in 2012, as I have in 2011!

Thank you, Marianne! I felt the same way about too many sweets:) and pleased to say I did NOT give in to buying runny brie and crusty bread!

Joyful and healthy New Year to you, and many more adventures in the kitchen!

I forgot what the picture looked like so mine ended up more like a slaw with tomatoes. Really yummy salad and the "broiled brie" on toast went so well with it.

Many thanks!

Barbara - depending on whether I'm using the Cusinart shredder, the KitchenAid shredder cone, or hand slicing and shredding, this salad can be everything from rough to fine. Glad you liked - and that brie on toast sounds like a perfect addition. Thanks so much!
