Nanou's red cabbage salad
If you are used to the usual red cabbage salad (just cabbage in a vinaigrette), I hope you will be agreeably surprised with this more sophisticated version using herbs, diced Parmesan and fried croutons.

Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 10 min.
Nanou's red cabbage salad
Prepare 700 g red cabbage and shred finely, then put in a salad bowl.

Stage 2 - 5 min.

Stage 3 - 5 min.

Coarsely chop the parsley leaves and finely chop the chives, then add to the bowl.

Stage 4 - 3 min.

Dice 2 slices bread.

Use a bread with some character: rustic, sourdough, granary, wholemeal, etc.

Stage 5 - 5 min.

Melt 2 tablespoons Clarified butter in a small frying pan on high heat. When good and hot, add the bread cubes.

Fry until golden brown all over, stirring frequently.

Stage 6 - 2 min.

Add the croutons to the salad. Finish with 5 tablespoons French dressing (vinaigrette), mix well and serve without delay.
As suggested in stage 4, it is worth using a brown, rustic style of bread (avoid sliced white if you can), which makes croutons that look stylish when browned and taste as good as they look.

If you don't have clarified butter, use normal butter, but do take care not to let it burn when frying the croutons.

For the cheese, you can use Pecorino or Comté instead of Parmesan.
1 or 2 days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.

Passion fruit jellies
Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .
