This is the salad that I make when I'm tired of my usual romaine or leaf lettuce salad. The festive colors of this salad remind me of confetti. If you are not a big fan of purple cabbage, simply decrease the amount in the recipe or serve this slaw over a bed of shredded romaine to balance out the flavors. Toss with your favorite dressing.
1 small head purple cabbage
2 large or 3 small carrots, peeled
1 cucumber, peeled and diced
1/2 pint grape tomates, halved
1 small yellow bell pepper, sliced into strips
1 small red bell pepper, sliced into strips
Shred cabbage in a food processor using the slicing blade. Shred carrots lengthwise in a food processor using the shredding blade. Toss with additional vegetables. This salad last 4-5 days in the fridge, undressed, in an airtight container. Makes 4-5 large servings or 8-10 small servings.
