Cajun vinaigrette gives this salad a wonderful punch. Maple vinaigrette is another good choice.
- ½ green cabbage
- 1 large carrot
- 2 tsp sea salt
- 6 slices bacon
- 1 clove garlic, grated
- 1 apple
- 3 celery stalks
- 6 scallions, minced
Place all vinaigrette ingredients, except the oil, in a bowl or jar. Stir and let rest 2-3 minutes to let the vinegar infuse. Add oil and stir well.
Wash cabbage and slice finely. Peel carrot and slice finely. Place in a salad bowl. Add salt and massage for about 1 minute to tenderize the vegetables. Let stand 10 minutes, during which time you can prepare the other ingredients.
Cook bacon on medium heat until its well-colored. Set aside. Add garlic to the pan, cook 30 seconds and pour, with 2-3 tablespoons of fat, onto the cabbage. Stir.
Dice apple and celery large. Add to the bowl with the scallions and some vinaigrette. Stir well.
