Thread: Valentine's day Red salad

  1. #1

    Default Valentine's day Red salad

    Happy Valentine's Day I got this recipe from my local paper, which was actually meant for the Chinese New Year, but since today is Valentine's day, might as well use it. I dunno how to upload an image here, if u wanna see a pic of the salad click here

    1/2 cup chinese black vinegar
    1/2 cup of brown sugar
    250g punnet of strawberries
    1 head red lettuce
    1/2 head red cabbage, shredded finely
    Toasted sesame seeds and roasted almond silvers (optional) for garnish

    1/2 cup canola oil
    1 tsp sesame oil
    1 tsp sugar
    2 Tbs rice vinegar
    1 tsp light soya sauce
    1/4 tsp salt

    Place black vinegar and sugar in a small pot and heat till mixture thickens into a treacle. Leave aside.

    Wipe strawberrys with a cloth. Do not wash or the flavour will leach away. Slice strawberries lengthwise. Wash and dry lettuce leaves. Shred red cabbage finely. Leave all aside.

    Make up dressing by placing ingredients in a bowl and whisk with a fork to emulsify the mixture.

    Place shredded cabbage in a bowl and pour over dressing. Toss to ensure that the leaves are well-coated.

    Place lettuce leaves on a plate. Lay sliced strawberries on top, overlapping in concentric rings. Place a mound of dressed cabbage leaves in the middle. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds and, if you like, some roasted almond silvers.

    Using a spoon, drizzle black vinegar syrup over the lot and serve at once.

    I do hope it taste lovely, besides looking lovely somehow, I find the seasonings a strange combi, but I dunno, perhaps some people may like it
