Cabbage & Kidney Bean Salad


I love cabbage. I always have. When I was a child, my father would make his own cole slaw; although I did not like cole slaw, I would hover around while he shredded the cabbage so he would give me a chunk of the head for me to eat. It was a great treat to me!

I like cabbage cooked, fermented and, of course, fresh. So when Farmer Kim told me he had picked cabbage, I jumped on it! This cabbage and kidney bean salad was inspired by one I found on Allrecipes.com. We ate it as a main dish for a refreshing lunch, but it can also be used as a side salad.

It as also time for other salads from our garden. Below is a salad based on tomatoes, cukes, thyme and parsley from the garden along with other local funds, some feta, chickpeas, and olives. Tasty!
