...Asian Cabbage Salad... pg. 75

You can find the recipe HERE

Last night no one was in the mood to cook. It has been so hot here... and cooking in the hot kitchen, over a hot stove, was LAST on my list. So flipping through my handy dandy cookbook, I came across this lovely recipe. My dad was grilling up a nice skirt steak, so I wanted something fresh, crisp, and cool for the side. This definitely did the trick! The recipe calls for toasted almonds... I don't like almonds. But since this was a challenge to try new things, I added them. And I LOVED them! I think it was my favorite part of the salad! It added a nice crunch, and great flavor!

Mixing the ingredients for the dressing in a sippy cup! (first thing I could get my hands on!)

the before and after.... (like the fancy dinnerware?! :) .... like I said before, it was hot!)
The only thing I didn't really like was that in the recipe, it says to add the dressing, and then put in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving. Well i felt the cabbage was a little soggy because of it. So next time I will add the dressing RIGHT before I serve.

I love the sippy cup for making salad dressing... could it be more obvious that you are a mother ;)
