Lime and Chili Cabbage Slaw

Lime and Chile Cabbage SlawThursday’s lunch salad was inspired by two things: a leftover head of savoy cabbage threatening extinction in the fridge and a recipe for crunchy lime cabbage slaw from my new favorite blog, Eggs on Sunday.

Eggs on Sunday is written by Amy, a fellow foodie who shares many of my own philosophies about eating:

I believe in cooking with whole, natural and organic ingredients, celebrating seasonal foods, and supporting local farmers by using local ingredients whenever I can. I’m not “officially” vegetarian, but I try to choose meat, dairy and eggs from animals that I can trust have been cared for, raised and processed humanely. I love to garden — the process of growing your own food is immensely rewarding and fun. I believe in taking time to enjoy food, and in relishing the joys of delicious food!

Check it out, make the salad, drink the hot chocolate, and enjoy!

The tostada: refried black beans, onions, tomatoes, corn, avocado, lettuce, cilantro, tomato

The lime and chili cabbage slaw: I made one amendment to Amy’s recipe – I added half of a hot red chile. Next time I’ll add a whole one. This rocked.

    Hi Monica!

    The lime cabbage sounded great so I checked out the new blog your mentioned! Thanks – it is always great to share in neat, natural and whole food ideas!

    And we have been including cabbage in our diet lately and hope to make it a regular thing, so that was great!

    As well the brussel sprouts in this meal you made look so good! I have been using them as often as I like….ok, who am I kidding, I cannot remember the last time I ate them. But would like to, so this reminder is great 🙂

    I love those brussels sprouts!!! Heidi’s method is my new favorite way to cook them…so good.

    And I am so jealous of your daily swims. I was a competitive swimmer in high school and miss it so much. I can’t wait ’till it warms up around here and the outdoor community pools open, I”m definitely getting a membership this summer. Its such a great workout, and so easy on your body!
