Cabbage Salad

This is a big bowl of happiness.  Cabbage salad with sunflower seeds and dried cranberries.  I love it, I especially love the fact that I grew the cabbage and carrots.  The dressing is a light vinaigrette made creamy with a little non-fat yogurt.

I made this for dinner after a long day in the garden, pulling spent plants, harvesting veggies, and pulling the never ending chickweed.  It was crunchy, sweet, tart and oh, so good.  We'll be eating this a lot for the next couple of weeks.

Cabbage Salad

1/4 head green cabbage, shredded
1/4 head purple cabbage, shredded
2 carrots, shredded
2 Tbsp. sugar or honey
2 Tbsp. cider vinegar
3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1/4 cup non-fat greek yogurt
handful of sunflower seeds
handful of dried, sweetened cranberries or cherries

Mix green cabbage, purple cabbage and carrots together.  Set aside.

Mix sugar or hone with vinegar, stir until sugar is dissolved, add oil and whisk.  Add yogurt and whisk until smooth.  Pour over cabbage and carrots, mix well and let sit for about 30 minutes.  Add cranberries and sunflower, mix.  Keeps several days covered in the refrigerator.
