Ivan’s Croatian White Cabbage Salad

Ivan, my mums amazing partner, introduced me to this salad, and ever since I have been addicted! It is so fresh, light refreshing and tangy that I use it as an accompaniment to so many meals, BBQ’s and lunches!

  • 1/2 head cabbage sliced finely (use a whole cabbage for a large salad)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup coconut vinegar (apple cider vinegar or white wine vinegar)
  • Salt and pepper

Put finely sliced cabbage, olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper into a salad bowl and adjust flavours to your taste. You can use your hands to work the salad through and release some of the cabbage flavours. There should be enough dressing to leave a small amount (about 1/3 or more) of liquid in the bottom of the bowl when you stir it around. It should have a balance of all ingredients and the vinegar in the salad is perfect to cut through a heavier meal. Marinate for 30min and then serve with your favourite meat dish – great with sausages or lamb, essential for BBQ’s or just any meal that needs a fresh salad on the side.
