I was inspired to make this little gem by the 4 Blades Podcast episode 27 Simple Summer Salads If you aren't listening to these guys cook their hearts out while you stroll around the river of an evening then you really should give it a go. They are in hot competition with my favourite Doctor Who podcasts and that is a sad addiction I should not even mention on a cooking blog
So anyway I read Bec's ideas here as well as the show notes and the original recipe mentioned which is here
And then I made it up as I went along (which is usually what happens here at Cafe Disarray)
Take: a handful of parsley (stalks and all), some coriander (I used 4 leaves of sawtooth coriander from the garden) and 40 g green onions (I only used the tops)
Chop 4 seconds at speed 10 and scrape down the sides
Add what Bec calls the "choppy bits"
I like to put carrot and apple in the bottom because big chunks of cabbage don't bother me so much. So I put in a medium carrot in chunks and a small red apple.
Top with 1/4 small cabbage - up to about 3/4 full. Cabbage is in chunks too like this:
Chop at speed 4 for 6-8 seconds - watch carefully and stop chopping if necessary so it is only chopped not blended
