Blooming Cabbage Salad

Here's a salad I made from the Chinese cabbage plants you saw in my post a couple of weeks ago. 

Blooming Cabbage Salad

After I used the little cabbage plants in the HERE ...
I put them in a big pot outside. 
It's been so warm that they grew fast, and then started blooming. 
They didn't form "heads", but are still very nice to eat. 

I cut one of the bolting cabbages and added it to some purple cabbage I had left over from an Easter curdite basket. 

 I assembled the basket after we got to my aunt's house. Sorry, I didn't take a close up pic of it, but you can see it in this one my cousin took on Easter. 

Back to the it is with the chicken enchiladas we had for tonight's supper.
All I did for the salad is chop the red cabbage and blooming Chinese cabbage. 
Add, a bit of chopped green onion, a drizzle of olive oil and a splash or two of Tarragon vinegar...salt and pepper. 
Then, garnished with the flowers. 
I still have six cabbages left, so guess I'd better get busy looking for recipes. 

Thanks for stopping by.

that salad looks yummy! I love salads. Even better that you used your own homegrown cabbage for it. The basket you put together for your Easter dinner looks so pretty! You definitely made vegetables look better.
