Thursday’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!

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.
