This recipe is a very popular salad in Sweden and Finland and is usually eaten with pizza. It’s therefore known as Pizza Salad in these countries. The salad is completely vegan and is a great base when you want to make a salad, you just put some of it on the bottom of a plate and then just pile up with any other vegetables and toppings you like – even pasta. The cabbage salad is also a great side dish to grilled meats and fish, so try it at your next barbeque!
1 head of fresh cabbage
2-4 tablespoons of white wine vinegar (depending on the size of the cabbage)
1-3 tablespoons of olive oil (depending on the size of the cabbage head)
½ – 1½ teaspoon(s) of salt
½ – 1 teaspoon of ground black pepper (or according to taste)
- Grate the cabbage on the coarser side of a grater or shred it finely with a knife.
- Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Make sure that the ingredients are well mixed, use your hands!
- Cover it with cling film and leave it in the fridge for at least two hours before serving.
This dish tastes better if you make it the day before you’re meant to eat it and just let it sit in the fridge and soap up all the flavours. If you want to, you can add some raw, shredded or grated red onion too.
