Happy Birthday, Une Peach!

Just like in real life, my birthday wish is a bit belated for Une Peach. 🙂 In April I passed a year since my first post on this blog.

Perfect for parties, large crowds, special dinners with friends… you name it. Plus its beautiful and I LOVE to eat some beautiful food. If you are not serving it the same day you don’t need to do step two, sitting overnight in the vinegar will take the sting out of the garlic. Just pop it in a tightly sealed plastic bag, put it in the fridge and dress the salad the next day like me. I also sprinkled lemon juice over the cut apples so they wouldn’t brown. Ingredients: 3 Tablespoons of olive oil 2 garlic cloves, minced 1/4 cup red wine vinegar 1 tablespoon maple syrup salt + pepper to taste 4 cups of shredded red cabbage (I added some green too) 1 large red apple, sliced thin 1/2 cup dried cranberries 2 tablespoons (or more) of cilantro Directions: Add your olive oil, garlic, red …
