I just wanted to share a recipe with you. This weekend, I had several cousins over, and needed to use a purple cabbage that I had in the fridge. A catering friend of mine gave me this recipe and it worked out great.
I shredded the purple cabbage on my mandoline, then added chopped celery and julienned carrot, and mixed it together.
In a pot, I quickly toasted 1/2 teaspoon of celery seeds, then I added a mixture of 1 cup veg oil, 1/2 cup of white vinegar, 1 tbsp on sugar, and 1 tbsp of salt, and several healthy grinds of black pepper. I headed that up til it just boiled and the sugar and salt were dissolved, and then tossed the hot dressing with the veggies. I covered it and let it sit in the fridge overnight. It was FANTASTIC. The colour was beautiful and it went over very well.
