Have you ever tried raspberry vinegar? I hadn’t, until the De La Rosa Company sent me some a few weeks ago. It has totally changed my level of cooking! The fruity and acidic qualities go so well with everything.
I decided to create an easy summer salad incorporating the important components of sweet, salty, and crunchy. I thought about adding quinoa to the cabbage for some added texture, along with sunflower seeds for crunch and roasted broccoli for taste. I was getting bored of my usual coleslaws and needed a fun dish that would be a great accompaniment for any meal or even eaten plain.
