When I tend to go through a specific food phase, I really go through a phase.
At this moment my life is all about citrus. I kid you not. You see that picture right there? That is only about a third of the citrus I have in my pantry at the moment.
Luckily it all came in handy this weekend as both OH and mini chef were out for the count with a cold.
Now, I promised OH I would say here that his was not a ‘man cold’. It was a very ‘serious’ cold which meant he had to sleep through the whole weekend. Sadly, he could not participate in the mammoth house cleaning session that I had planned.
My citrus hoarding allowed me to give them lots of lemon tea, grapefruit and orange juice. And on Sunday evening decided to celebrate their feeling better with a quick easy citrus salad
OH wolfed down his portion in 5 mins. He wanted the cabbage to be chopped a little bit smaller in future. And could he please have some more. Now remember what I said earlier about him not having the ‘man cold’…….
I love making this not only because it taste good but also because the colours are gorgeous. It is basically a whole load of citrus on a bed of red cabbage and mint sprinkled on top. You can tweak it as much as you want. Add in cheese, nuts, onions and other fruits. Chop up the fruit and cabbage in whatever size and shape you want. There are no exact measurements for this one. Then drizzle on some salad dressing of your choice and you are good to go.
PS – If you love the red cabbage in this recipe, how about trying my roasted red cabbage recipe?
