Brussels Sprouts, Red Cabbage & Sweet Peas Salad

Vegetables are fun to photograph! I had a pleasant time capturing the ingredients of my salad today. Dramatic, dark style is definitely my favorite and since there is no sun visiting our town, the rainy weather is a perfect setup. This post is not so much about the recipe as much about the beauty of simple vegetables becoming the center of attention on the dinner table. I hope you like my creations and if you have any questions about styling or my photographing technique I will be glad to answer them all.

Have a creative weekend my dear readers!

    Hi Yelena.

    The Brussels sprouts are raw? They have a strange flavour like that.

    Yes, the Brussels sprouts are raw, and they taste wonderful. You jus need to shred them, slice them very thin.
