a healthy party

Hi there,

Truth be told, I'm waiting to get a camera to post some pretty pictures of the recipes I've tried in the past few days.  In the meantime, I'm using my phone camera.

Tonight, I prepped my salad for tomorrow.  I call it the Party Salad because of all the bright colours and how crunchy it is.  But I think that name is a bit misleading because it's actually a super-healthy salad (lots of bright coloured veggies = healthy!).

Here's it is:

Party Salad
(borrowed from my Mom)

1/4 of a Red Cabbage, chopped into 1/4" strips
1-2 Carrots, julienned
1 Green Apple, julienned
1/2 cup of walnuts, roughly chopped
1 banana, cut into 1/2" chunks
Dressing:
Olive Oil
Vinegar
Salt & Pepper

My salad doesn't have the walnuts or the bananas yet, because I don't want the walnuts to get soggy or the bananas to go brown, so I'm adding them in tomorrow right before serving.

'Night!
