"I can do that," I said to myself as I read the recipe for cabbage and peanut salad that I found in Ina's recipe box. "I have cabbage, and I have peanuts, and I have some salad dressing." I get tired of green salad -- especially making green salad. Perhaps this would be a nice change.
Here's the recipe:
2 cups cabbage, shredded
1/2 cup peanuts, chopped
Use salad dressing of your choice (I think that means something in the family of mayonnaise or Miracle Whip.)
Garnish with maraschino cherries.
So, I shredded the cabbage, mixed in the chopped peanuts, and dressed with Miracle Whip. I didn't garnish.
"This is good," exclaimed Mike. "What is it?"
Great! A successful new/old salad option. I'm thinking it also has possibilities: a little shredded carrot, perhaps a little pineapple, maybe the dressing that I use on broccoli salad. Or maybe I should just leave well enough alone. KW
