that one with the ramen noodles and toasted slivered almonds? It's a party favorite. I enjoy it a lot but this year, I really wanted to try something different. I found this recipe at smitten kitchen. As soon as I saw the homemade buttermilk dressing and the radishes, I knew I had to give it a shot. This salad is composed of sliced celery, diced radish, thinly sliced napa cabbage, and chopped chives. These four ingredients are tossed with the buttermilk dressing. It is that simple. What a wonderful, fresh taste that went really well with the leftover BBQ ribs we had for dinner.
I loved this salad and I am so glad that I had the forethought to dress just part of it for dinner tonight and keep the rest separate. I will enjoy some for lunch tomorrow too. I loved that the dressing was tart and just a bit sweet. It was a cinch to make and so, so good. To me this salad just verged on being a slaw without actually heading all the way in that direction. I most definitely would make this again and would serve it at a party. The kids weren't really that interested, but I find it hard to get little ones very interested in anything with cabbage.
Here are a couple of other links that I might try if we get some more napa cabbage. One is for a slaw and the other is for a stir fry. I'll be sure to share it we give either of them a shot!
