Christmas Salad Slaw

                          
















This the salad that we ate on Christmas day last year. It is as beautiful as is healthy.


It contains bunches of rich dark green kale mixed with chopped red radicchio, strands of grated snow white cabbage, candied dried cranberries, and a variety of seeds and nuts.  This delightful combination is then tossed in a sweet creamy dressing.

 Vegan, Gluten Free, and exotic,   this special salad is welcome at any celebration, but the rich red and green presentation makes it perfect for Christmas.

We had a vegetarian brunch on Christmas day and my cousin Elaine brought this salad slaw. Elaine always makes wonderful salad and vegetable recipes, so of course I asked for the recipe.

Salad:
1 large bunch of curly kale, washed,  ribs removed,  and chopped. 
1/2 cup chopped escarole
1 cup of grated white cabbage
1 cup red raddichio, chopped
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup of pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup of walnuts

Dressing.

1/4 cup olive oil
1/8 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup orange juice
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 teaspoon of mayo ( just  a drop) can use vegan mayo
poppy seeds , salt and pepper to taste
mix well toss on salad...
