Health Salad

Its been a LOOOONNNGGGG summer. A long summer of eating, not working out and just basically putting the kids as number one because they never left me alone :)
I am so thrilled that school started again. I can get back into my routine, get back to my healthful eating, and get back to the gym. I only gained a few pounds in the end, but I feel like my muscles went mushy and my eating is pretty sucky. So back to work!
AND back to blogging my recipes. I have a running list of some of the good stuff I have made and so I will play catch up as quickly as I can.

So on we go, I wish I found this at the beginning of the summer. I had lunch at some restaurant someplace and they had this cabbagey vingery salad and I loved it. I cant for the life of me remember where the heck it was but when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it. I ate it for days and cant wait to make it again.
