    Cookgirl's Note:

    Inspired by a stroll through the produce stands at our local farmers' market. If purple isn't your favorite color, choose another: orange, green, red, etc. Purple beets or the delicious Peruvian purple potatoes, roasted, are another suggestion for this salad... The vinaigrette I found online from an Oregon source: Hood River, Oregon to be precise, along the lovely Columbia River Gorge! Be sure your ingredients for this recipe are very fresh! Eggplant is NOT allowed within fifty feet of this salad.

    • 1 purple bell pepper, seeded, membrane removed, thinly sliced
    • 1 cup red cabbage, coarsely shredded
    • 2 purple carrots, NOT peeled, sliced on the diagonal

    Raspberry Lavender Vinaigrette


    1. 1

      Salad: Arrange the vegetables artfully on a salad platter lined with the romaine lettuce.
    3. 3

      I made this using straberry vinegar instead of raspberry and to dress it up I left a flowered stem in the bottle. It was beautiful and delicious A new favorite.
