crunchy apple-veggie salad
are ya stuffed, too? - i probably gained my full bodywheight last night ... oh - all these sauces, meat, fish, chips... i can literally feel the christmas cookies on my hips.
so it's time for something quick and healthy. not that the cabbage will give my stomach a rest - but hey: here is my quick but delicious veggie salad. i couldnt resist to put some bacon into the salad. you can leave it out, if you like. but if i was you - i wouldnt. too healthy isnt any fun, is it? (plus: it's christmas day after all!)
4 tablespoons of white balsamicovineggar
1 teaspoon mustard
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons of sour cream
5-6 tablespoons of sunflower oil
bunch of parsley, chopped
2 apples, cored and cut in small slices
200g carrots, peeled
250g white cabbage, finely diced
4-5 rashers of streaky bacon, finely diced
walnuts and onion sprouts
mix the balsamico and mustard for the sauce, season with salt and pepper, then add the sour cream and (while whisking) the oil. add chopped parsley to the sauce.
finely grate the carrots directly into the sauce, add diced cabbage & apples. mix and let rest for 10 minutes.
fry the bacon in a pan, let cool a bit, then add to the salad with the walnuts and onion sprouts.
