Cabbage Flower

Red cabbage flower
This picture isn’t so much about the recipe but about the cabbage flower I used to decorate a tray. I love making these for events I cater. Simple to make and really make an impact on a tray. Take a small red cabbage and using a very sharp knife, make 8 cuts going almost to the bottom but DO NOT cut all the way through the core. Take the head of cabbage and fill a 5 gallon bucket with water. Soak the cabbage in it overnight or until the cabbage has opened up like a flower. These look beautiful on vegetable display. I have cut out the center and inserted small bowl of dip in the middle. The appetizer that is on the tray is biscuit medallions with cilantro mayonnaise spread on top, topped with a grilled marinated pork tenderloin with mango salsa as a garnish.

      Thank you. I love making these. I may make one for an upcoming technique class I’m teaching at Williams Sonoma. — Sherry
