I picked this guy out of the garden last Thursday. I was so pleased with his size and lack of bugs (this despite the fact that his big outer leaves looked pretty chewed on)! If you will recall, he's a Savoy King.
Since he is my very fist cabbage ever, I wanted to do something special with him. So, I found a recipe for some basic, but awesome looking coleslaw, and then added my own spins to make it a little Asian-y.
I chopped up this head of cabbage, along with the last of the carrots from the garden (call it two big carrots). Then I mixed in 1/2 cup Salata (seasoned vinegar), 2 tablespoons sesame seed oil, the juice of one lime, a small handful of chopped cilantro, and salt and pepper. It ended up quite tasty!
