 Blondie's Accidental No-Lettuce Salad
 This salad came about when I took all the salad mixins to a friends'
 house but forgot the lettuce.  It was very good and got rave reviews
 from everyone!
 1/4 head of purple cabbage, shredded or sliced into thin sections and
 separated (make into bit-sized pieces)
 1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
 2 carrots, shredded, or chopped into small pieces
 5 oz. frozen peas, thawed (but not cooked)
 1 cup Assortment of sprouts (I used something called "crunchy" sprouts,
 which is a blend that my local grocer sells) I don't think that the
 stringy type sprouts would be good in this (the sprouts should have
 some crunch)
 1-2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar (or to taste)
 black pepper
 Optional ingredients:
 Green onions or scallions
 cauliflower (although you might want to blanch it first OR cut into really
 small pieces)
 brocolli (as above)
 snow peas
 Put all ingredients in a bowl and toss to mix.  Put in the
 refrigerator to marinate for a few hours and eat. I used red-
 wine vinegar and purple ruffles vinegar, which my sister made for
 me out of purple ruffles basil.
 We served this with some hot Indian dishes as is, but you can
 also serve as follows:
 Serving suggestions:
 Serve on a bed of red-leaf lettuce
 Serve in a pita with some lettuce and salsa (that's what I did with
 the leftovers -yummy)
 Serve on morning whole-grain english muffin
