Merry Green January

The holiday season is winding down but the Susty Party Green Party Pack featuring and Green Collection is here to bring green January cheer!  Just add this simple Shaved Cauliflower and Red Cabbage Salad salad and you've got a beautiful and delicious dish to present.  This vegan salad is rich in glucosinolates, phytochemicals known to assist in regulating our body’s detoxification enzymes and protect against cancer - good for that new year resolution detox ;)

A refreshingly light meal or accompanying side, you can serve the shaved salad topped with a few extra squeezes of fresh lemon juice and thick slices of avocado.  This pile of green and purple goodness looks best atop the Susty Party Green Party Pack.

Our Green Party Pack, available at Safeway in Seattle or at Balducci's, serves up to eight and provides conscious hosts an easy, environmentally friendly, and playfully vibrant way to throw a perfect 2015 kick off party!  The green collection is all 100% recycled, biodegradable, certified compostable, and disposable – including cocktail napkins, wood cutlery, paper cups and straws, and super sturdy 7” plates - available for the everyday consumer. 

Shaved Cauliflower and Red Cabbage Salad [makes 6 servings]

½ head cauliflower (about ¾ pound), tough leaves removed
½ head red cabbage (about 1 pounds), cored
6 inner stalks celery with leaves
½ cup flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
½ cup (2 ounces) raw walnuts, roughly chopped
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
juice and zest of 1 lemon
¼ cup olive oil

Using a food processor fitted with a slicing disk (or a handheld mandoline), shave
cauliflower, cabbage, and celery. Transfer to a large serving bowl and gently toss with
parsley and walnuts. Set aside.

To prepare dressing, in a small mixing bowl, whisk together mustard with lemon zest and
lemon juice. Gradually whisk in olive oil until well combined. Pour over tossed salad
immediately prior to serving. Enjoy!
