tasty vitamins

Originally uploaded by lornababy
when we were in vancouver and seattle, i must have had a salmon burger at least once a day. the salmon burgers up there weren't patties, though, they were slabs of salmon on a bun. yumalicious. my favorite one had an asian slaw instead of lettuce on the sandwich. i've been enamored of that flavor combination and trying to recreate it ever since we got back. here's what i came up with for the slaw:

6 c. shredded red & green cabbage and carrots
3 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil

this slaw is good and good for you. it's lite on the mayo so it's only about 80 calories for a cup of slaw. that cup, however has tons of vitamins, as cabbage, especially red cabbage, has tons of vitamin c and carrots have even more vitamin a. so mix up this slaw and enjoy your vitamins!

You could try adding very finely sliced spring onion or chives to this...

that very same salmon burger that you describe brought back fond memories to Uncle Doodles when he lived in Vancouver. I have made it a few times for him. But since salmon is hard to come by around here he settles for the canned....poor boy!!!
