Something fresh? Cavolo e Seme di Lino salad.

Good morning!

As summer kisses us with its fresh rays, and the longest day of the year is a mere many hours of daylight away, it’s time for something bright, something refreshing, and something re-done to suit a Bubble Child’s palate.

Working at Gottino, the popular Italian wine bar and small plates bistro in Greenwich Village, our menu changed frequently, but there were a select few items that never missed that page: one being the Cavoletti e Pecorino salad.  This uplifting salad was a vertical stack of shaved raw brussel sprouts, olive oil, sea salt, ground black pepper, and then walnuts and pecorino cheese.  Two no-nos for Bubble Children with strong dairy and nut allergies.

Here is the salad re-invented, measured out, and made delicious for you and your Bubble Children to enjoy.

Buon appetito!!

Cavolo e Seme di Lino

6 cups shredded green cabbage (using mandolin or thin knife cuts)

3 tbs. extra virgin olive oil

6 tbs. whole flax seeds

1 tsp. fine sea salt (fleur de sel or sel de guerande preferred)

ground black pepper, to taste (about 1/4 tsp.)

Preparation time: 2 minutes

Serves 4

  1. Toss all ingredients in large bowl until evenly coated with oil.
  2. Serve into four small bowls, stacking salad as vertically as you can.

It’s delicious.  Aren’t you glad you didn’t pay 8 bucks for it?
