Winter Salad Platter

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by SusieQusie

A showy salad with a riot of colors and packed with good for you veggies. The red cabbage not only adds color, it contains more vitamin C than green cabbage.

Here's a great combination of all kinds of veggies I would not normally have put together, but in this recipe it worked out beautifully, LITERALLY! A very impressive display, although it took a bit of encouragement to get the first person to serve themself & thus mess it up! Thanks for posting!
