Grated Cabbage and Root Slaw with Amana Colonies Dressing
A few weeks ago I was looking for a radish recipe and found one called Amana Colonies Radish Salad. It has a sour cream dressing that can be used on roots besides radishes. The source of the recipe, Cooking A to Z, notes “One group of German immigrants, the Amana Society founded seven villages near Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in the 19th century. For many years the residents dined in communal kitchens. Their far, of which this radish salad is typical, reflected both their German heritage and the abundant harvest of the rich Iowa farmland.”

2 cups grated cabbage
2 cups grated root vegetables (radish, beets, carrots, turnips, kohlrabi)
½ cup sour cream
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
¼ tsp ground pepper
2 tbsp chopped chives, parsley or dill
  1. Mix cabbage and root slices with salt. Place in a colander and let stand to drain for 30 to 45 minutes. Blot dry with paper towels

  2. In a medium bowl blend together sour cream, vinegar, pepper and chives. Add drained vegetables and mix lightly to coat with dressing. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve (up to 2 hours).
  3. Serve salad in bowl lined with lettuce leaves

Warm weather got me going to the blog to see "what's new". I saw the last post from November asking for reaction to the blog. We'll I'll comment that I really enjoyed the blog, and the ability to comment back. It made me feel more of a part of the "community". Thanks for sharing with us.
