grilled cabbage salad with buffalo celery ranch

We had pre-funked all week with margaritas and enchiladas and margaritas, so when Cinco de Mayo rolled around, what do you think we served yesterday for our little shindig?

Hummus and olives and pickled veggies and hot peppers. A big ol’ mess of it – it was a deliciously beautiful spread – a Mediterranean antipasti feast.

…and I did not get one photo.

I enjoyed my Sunday. Did you?

Saturday we grilled.

When I was thinking how to prepare my cabbage last week, I considered grilling it. We love grilled romaine around here – platters of it have disappeared at pool parties (I can still see my old boss walking around my deck making everyone try a leaf…). We ended up not grilling last week, but I was left wondering how grilled cabbage would taste. I had a very specific idea of how I would hope it would turn out…

Lindsey from Pas de Deux did grill cabbage last week – and her recipe is what I chose to recreate for round two of cabbage week.

I dressed mine differently, and sorta ripped the wedges up into this big beautiful grilled pile, and it was fantastic and exactly what I had hoped it would be. I added some buffalo sauce (Franks Red Hot) to my celery ranch dressing, and topped the salad with cashews for crunch. A simple and unique salad.
