Mexican Salad and GUESS WHAT?

Hope you all are having a great week. Wanted to share a Mexican salad with you this week. I actually made a Mexican dinner for a sweet family and of course had plenty to keep.


Now let me tell you up front that if you do not like cabbage you will NOT like this. I love Cabbage and any way you cook or fix it!

2 heads of cabbage washed and drained. Then core your cabbage and dice in strips thinly. Put the cabbage in a bowl and set aside.                   (this recipe can be adjusted to how many you will want to feed)


2 small cans or 1 large can of black sliced olives drained. (set aside)
 


1 small bag of medium size radishes washed and sliced.
 


I used around 4 of the green onions. Washed, drained and diced...onion and green part.


I snipped just a tad of parsley, onion grass, and basil from my little herb garden and washed it and diced it up.


Take all the ingredients above and mix in a large bowl. I sprinkled 2 tsp. of kosher salt and  1 tsp. of black pepper on the salad mixture and mixed in well. Then I added 2 tsp. of dill weed. I used my trusty bottle of McCormick's but I have some fresh dill growing! Sprinkle that in the salad mixture and give it a toss.
 


Next, take 1 1/2 cups of red wine vinegar or  seasoned rice vinegar (which I love to use) and 1 cup of olive oil. ( I use extra virgin olive oil) Mix together with a wisk. Add 1/2 cup of sugar and wisk together. Taste to see if you need more sugar, vinegar or oil. Your taste buds will tell you what you like. I added more sugar! (LOL!) Mix well and toss really good into your cabbage mixture. If it taste to dry for you then mix up a little more of your oil/vinegar combination and toss again. 
 
Love this stuff.

This recipe actually made 4 of these 8x8 size pans full. Cover and chill in frig. If you want too sprinkle a little shredded cheese on top before serving.


I also made a Mexican casserole, Mexican cornbread and even Mexican cookies! All I needed was a sombrero!

Now GUESS WHAT?
I entered a giveaway for a 16x20 Canvas and won!
