Wow, 1 Cabbage produces copious amounts of shredded cabbage!! Having bought 1 green and 1 purple cabbage, I had no idea what I was in and needed to get a little innovative so we wouldn’t be eating the same salad for days and days.
With two salads in mind, I started out with a Creamy Avocado dressing.
No oil or mayo needed, this green salad dressing was made entirely of veggies, some herbs, lemon and buttermilk. Cream-y!!
You could use this dressings for many salads, or even add a few more avocados and use it as a dip for veggies.
Biggest mistake I made with this salad, was not shredding the cabbage thin enough, I made sure to do that for the second salad though, which should be coming up tomorrow, so please stay tuned
