The Humble Cabbage

One of the great things about vegetables is they are so versatile.
Take the humble cabbage.
It is great:
Steamed with a few potatoes thrown in.
Stir fried in a pan.
Added to an "egg" roll.
Used as a container for fillings.
Tossed in some soup.

But my favorite use for the humble cabbage --

Yes, a simple slaw can add so much flavor and dimension to a meal.

This slaw is a breeze to make when you use your kitchen friend -- the food processor.

Spicy "Italian" Slaw
(all ingredients found at your friendly Walmart Store)

1/2 medium size head of cabbage, shredded
5 or 6 radishes, shredded
5 or 6 baby carrots, shredded

Remove shredded veggies from food processor bowl
and put into a mixing bowl.

Add the following:
3 Tbsp. of mustard
1 tsp. of sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp. of Mrs. Dash Italian seasoning

Mix well.
Chill and serve.

That is all there is to it...the humble cabbage
becomes a simple side.
