Gianna Dinuzzo, food blogger and recipe creator for Ooooby Fresno, has come up with a quick and easy salad that can be used as a side dish or meal.
Using some of the best that winter has to offer, she combines green cabbage, carrots, cilantro, watermelon radish and mandarins. It’s sweet, crunchy and tangy.
Dinuzzo, whose blog is www.giannamary.com, said the salad can be made with or without chicken.
