Napa Cabbage, Asian Pear & Carrot Salad

Napa Cabbage, Asian Pear & Carrot Salad

I can't believe January is coming to an end. I could not have done this month of salads without the help of all my guest bloggers, how fantastic they all were! Today our last guest blogger Mary, The Food Librarian, is here to show us how to make a napa cabbage salad. The Food Librarian was one of the first blogs I ever started reading. I love that we've been blog friends for so long. You can also follow her on twitter and Facebook. Thanks Mary.

Hi! I'm delighted Damaris asked me to guest post a salad this month. I've been following Damaris for years and remember meeting her at the first BlogHer Food with teeny tiny baby Maria in her arms. Although we only had that brief meeting, I know she is a friend I can turn to for inspiration and wonderful updates of her lovely family. Wishing you and yours a wonderful 2012 filled with yummy salads! - mary the food librarian

This simple salad combines Napa cabbage, toasted almond silvers, Asian pear, carrots and sesame seeds. Have you seen the Julienne Peeler? It comes in handy making nice carrot julienne strips.

I'm a big baker but love salads. My favorite salads combine vegetables and a bit of sweetness. Asian pears are perfect because they have a great crunch and don't brown like regular apples. Pick up some Asian pears when you see them in the farmer's market!
