The Simplest Cabbage Salad Ever
Tonight I'm making Cuban-marinated chicken, sauteed broccoli with olive oil and garlic, and my purple cabbage salad.
This cabbage salad is delicious. And good for you. And gorgeous. And so easy to make, because it only has 3 ingredients, not including salt and pepper.
Without further ado....
Dena's Purple Cabbage Salad
1 organic purple cabbage, quartered and cored
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
Once you've removed the core from the cabbage, slice it as thinly as you can into ribbons. Watch your fingers.
Put the ribbons of cabbage into your salad bowl, and dress with as much olive oil and lemon juice as tastes good to you -- some people like more lemon or less according to personal taste.
Add plenty of salt and pepper -- do not skimp here! The salt and pepper really bring out the flavor.
Toss well, serve, and enjoy.
