Monday Menu Item

I found this recipe a few weeks ago and just got around to trying it out this weekend.  This is a keeper and although great for any time, this will be an especially great hot weather dish.

Unfortunately I do not know where I got this from so I cannot properly acknowledge its origin.  If you should know where this is from, please let me know so appropriate credit can be given.

Cabbage Salad with Tomatoes, Radishes and Celery

5-6 cups finely chopped green cabbage (about 1/2 head of cabbage)
1 cup diced tomatoes (diced up grape tomatoes)
1/2 cup celery
1/2 cup chopped celery leaves (optional, but good)
6 radishes, stem and root cut off and slices (optional, but good)
1/4 cup slice green onions - dark green part (didn't have and used a red onion)

2 Tablespoons cider vinegar
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
3 Tablespoons grapeseed oil (I used olive oil)

Toss all salad ingredients together in a large bowl.  Wisk dressing ingredients in a small bowl, add to salad.

I found this a great accompaniment to a meal or great as a snack.  The only problem was it doesn't last ... we ate it all up!  Have to make a bigger batch next time.

Into week 3 of Weight Watchers PlusPoints, I'm on the lookout for any such recipes.  Feel free to send any my way, I would love it.
