Cabbage Salad With Creamy Horseradish Dressing

I recently became addicted to the Fresh Express Southwest cabbage bagged salads that you can find at your local grocery story.  I loved this salad so much, I was finding myself spending a lot of money when I figured I could just make it myself.  I ending up making a cabbage salad that I think I like better and I’m here to share it with you. (And it also allows me to feature my vintage Tupperware servalier.)

Here’s what you’re going to need:

Ingredients

  • 6 cups chopped cabbage
  • 2 large celery stalks
  • 3 carrots
  • 3 green onions
  • 3 radishes
  • 1/2 chopped cilantro
  • 1/3-1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
  • 1-2 tablespoons of horseradish (depending on the level of heat you want to add)
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

You first want to start by chopping up your cabbage.  I usually use a mixture of both green and red cabbage, but green cabbage was all I had on hand.  Corsely chop about 6 cups.

Next you’ll need to use your mandolin (or use your trusty knife) and chop your celery, carrots, green onions and radishes. Finely chop your cilantro and grab 1/3-1/2 cup of raisins.

Combine all ingredients and mix very well.  Next, we’ll move onto the dressing.

This dressing is something that I came up with after having a horseradish based coleslaw dressing in Northern California.  Most coleslaw dressings are made with mayo, sugar, vinegar and salt n pepper.  That’s fine for a traditional dressing, but mine kicks it up by using sweetened condensed milk.  Once you used sweetened condensed milk, you’ll never go back to making your dressing the old way- trust me!  Ok, let’s start:

Combine the mayonnaise, vinegar, horseradish, sweetened condensed milk, salt, pepper and milk.  Mix throughly until the consistency of a thick dressing.  Adjust any seasonings or liquids of the dressing to your liking.

I hope you enjoy this recipe.  If you have tried it, I would love to hear your feedback.  Feel free to share this with your friends via Facebook or Pinterest.

Enjoy!

 

Vintage Tupperware Lunch Tray Collection

Vintage Tupperware Trays and Lunch Plates

These trays are awesome for outdoor BBQ’s and hanging out in the pool. It gives you that old school lunch tray feel.

This set consists of both the lunch/dinner trays and the luncheon plates and cups and coffee mugs and the ice bucket.  I believe the luncheon plates with the cups are from the 70’s as they are in the classic Autumn Harvest colors.  The lunch/dinners trays could be from the 70’s or 80’s.  I’m working on finding more information online about these.  Anyone who might remember, please feel free to chime in.

 

 

 

Vintage Tupperware Collection

Vintage Tupperware Collection

This collection all started with finding the vintage Tupperware salt & pepper shakers. (718-11 and 718-15). I love the patterns and colors.

Tupperware was created in 1946 by Earl Tupperware and was primarily released to the public through the famous “Tupperware” parties in the 1950’s.  The Wonderlier (round storage bowl sets in those fantastic colors) tended to be the best sellers, however there we also Jello molds, cake carriers, pitchers, storage containers, condiment dispensers, etc.  Pretty much anything that you needed to house or store, there was a Tupperware container that would hold it.  Each Tupperware piece comes along with it’s own ID number and stamped with the famous circles emblem and Tupperware branding.

In your local thrift stores, you can find these pieces for $1.99 at the most for the smaller pieces and under $5.00 for the larger sizes.  Here are some examples of their current prices.  The salt and pepper shakers were purchased for $1.00 each and can now be found online for $15.00 used.  The blue Tupperware canisters were $4.99 and are easily over $30.00 on many online websites.  The Jello mold was purchased for less than $2.00 and goes for over $15.00 online.

Tupperware was “Made in the USA” and comes with a lifetime guarantee.  Now, what’s not to love?
