a prelude to summer

Nate's lunch: Tofurky, lettuce, soy cheese, Vegannaise rollups; carrots; a pickle; watermelon; bean salad; chocolate bears.
Ryan's lunch: same as Nate's, in larger quantities of course!

Purple Crunchy Cabbage

1 small head cabbage
2 scallions, chopped
1 T. miso
1 T. lime juice
2 T. Vegannaise
2. T. rice vinegar
1 tsp. grated ginger
2 T. cilantro

Slice or grate the cabbage. Add scallions.
Mix together next 5 ingredients in a small bowl. Add to cabbage and toss.
Sprinkle on cilantro. Serve!

I'm not a big fan of raw cabbage or cole slaw, but this dressed in this creamy tangy sauce I'm all over it. And it looks so darned pretty too.

The cabbage salad recipe sounds really good. Right up my alley. I can't wait to make it this summer.

Funny, because I'm always looking for ways to use up my CSA cabbage. But I actually bought a cabbage at the store, only because I needed some purple in one of Ryan's bentos, and then I needed to use it up. Hence the recipe! I'm actually starting to enjoy cabbage now!
