I love veggies. But I could eat more of them. During summer that is easy. During winter – not so much. It’s the time I crave soups. Something warm, soothing and filling. But I wanted to challenge myself for Claras veggie expedition. February it’s all about savoy cabbage. I could have easily made a soup… with pearl barley and beef. But no I had my mind set on salad. A winter salad.
Best lukewarm… because it’s cold out there. And also something savory… bacon is always a good choice! Are you hungry yet? Ok here is is:
Winter Salad with Savoy, Bacon and Tiger Nuts
♥ 1/4 savoy cabbage
♥ Bacon (as much as you like)
♥ 2 tbsp olive oil
♥ 1/2 tsp caraway seeds
♥ 2 tbsp Balsamico, white
♥ 1 pinch brown sugar
♥ 1 handful chopped tiger nuts (If you don’t have any tiger nuts you can easily use any other nut you have. I just had them in the pantry.)
1. Cut savoy cabbage and remove stem. Wash leaves and cut into stripes. Remove veining. Boil for 3 minutes in salted water. Drain and let cool.
2. Roast bacon until crunchy.
3. Toss everything together and season with salt, pepper and caraway seeds. Add oil and vinegar. Garnish with tiger nuts and bacon. Enjoy lukewarm.
What is your favorite winter salad? Do you use savoy often? I don’t. I think its the second time ever I bought this cabbage. But with the many recipes coming in I am sure I will give it a spin. And I have 3/4 of the cabbage in my freezer. All cut up. easy to make soup…
