Cabbage Salad

I've been in a bit of a cooking rut the past few days.


A batch of cookies I was completely excited about were an epic failure - the dough didn't hold together so they melted all over the pan AND they tasted terrible. Sigh.


THEN, I decided to make pizza and let's just say it was a total meltdown. It ended with a hole in the crust and the ugliest shape you ever did see. I can't even show you, I'm too embarrassed. But, it tasted GREAT. So, when I get my act together, I'll make it again and share the recipe with you all. Promise!


Needless to say, I needed a break from the kitchen. We went out to dinner for the first time since March (OMGITWASSOGOOD), ordered in Chinese food and basically ate leftovers. It was awesome.


So, I decided to ease back into the cooking game with a no-cook salad. Baby steps, people!


This salad is nice and crunchy and so incredibly fresh! The dressing is a little sweet and a little salty and definitely delicious!


I think it pairs well with fish!

Enjoy!
