Do you ever make something in your kitchen and it tastes…well…meh. But then you go to someone else’s home and they make the same things with varying twists and you LOVE it. I was completely inspired last night at a casual dinner at the home of Patrick and Meghan of Mister and Mrs. Sharp. The fact that they are incredible designers and dining in their home feels like you are in a five star hotel (for real, it’s incredible) probably helps. But still, Meghan made an incredibly fresh salad with a base of organic green cabbage from Serenbe Farms.
So, today I was inspired to re-create a slaw or cabbage salad and it was so delicious! Sometimes during these hot, southern Georgia days all I can stomach mid-day is a fresh, crisp salad. When things are in season and you get them weekly in your farm share you really have to get creative on new recipes. But the best thing is…it nourishes my body and continually helps me crave healthy, whole food.
This recipe was born how most of mine are…I just start throwing a bunch of things I think will taste good into a bowl and mix! Enjoy!
