Why pay for something when you can make it bee-autifully at home? I LOVE having elegant salads, but I hate paying big bucks for something that I can make at home and way cheaper. This recipe is one of my favorite ways of using honey comb! Honey comb is cut off the frames of honey straight from the hive. Honey comb is the beeswax, honey, and small amounts of pollen. We have many customers that don’t know what to do with it; so I thought I would share one of the many ways you can use honey comb at The Honey Cottage! Enjoy Honey Comb salad this summer!
1 cup of lettuce
¼ cup of purple cabbage
2 Tbsp. shredded carrot
¼ cup of shredded mild cheddar cheese
1-2 radishes sliced up
½ a tomato
½ cup of blueberries
2 Tbsp. of cashews
5- 1 by 1 inch pieces of honey comb
½ Tbsp of balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp of raw honey
Take a cup of lettuce and place it into a bowl or on a plate. Then shred the cabbage, carrots, and cheddar cheese and sprinkle half of each on the lettuce, toss it together. Then add the rest of the cabbage, carrot, and cheese. Slice up the radishes and slice the half of tomato into quarter slices. Decorate the top of the salad with the radishes and tomatoes; top with blueberries and cashews. Lastly, take a clean knife and cut a strip of honey comb, cut them into 1 inch squares, use a fork to carefully pull them out of container, and top onto the salad.
Tips: This salad is amazing topped with chicken, shrimp, or steak pieces! I also love adding strawberries or raspberries. Great with pecans and walnuts too!
This makes a single serving.
