It snowed last weekend. Yes, winter arrived earlier than usually. Can you believe it? I hope this doesn’t lead us into lots of cold weather down the road since I am not up for it yet. I mean, I am really never up for it, except that I need some snow to enjoy my time on the slopes.

Today, another day back in the high 60’s with sunshine, so hey, let’s start the grill, right? I barbequed a nice pork tenderloin and needed a good salad along side. This is what I came up with.

A crunchy red cabbage kohlrabi salad dressed with an Asian inspired spicy peanut butter flavored sauce. Fresh and healthy!

I'm so sorry about the snow, but this salad looks like a great antidote to it!

*Lea Ann:the plate, the place met, I am so happy we finally have an IKEA here in Denver.

Beautiful colors on the plate and I bet it tasted wonderful. I'd have to fore go the pork, but more salad, please!

Kirsten, that top photo may be your best photo yet! Beautiful. And love that Ikea plate. I had that in my hand this past weekend and didn't get it. The salad sounds wonderful. I love cabbage.

This salad looks so fresh and crisp! I am also having difficulty looking for the grape seed jalapeno pepper oil. How do I get hold of this? Thanks!

The colors here are so vibrant, and I mean, anything with peanut sauce is good enough for me!

This looks so fresh and crunchy! I have trouble with tossed salad once it gets cold. This would fill the bill completely. L-O-V-E the plate and background. Groovilicious!

Ooohhhh … looks very cool. One question: grapeseed jalapeno oil? hard to find?
