Another variant of red cabbage salad with taste of lime, very fresh! Here is inspiration to a more classical one.
I believe that red cabbage is best when it isn’t cooked, apart from white cabbage that is most tasty after being fried or slightly browned in the oven. But the color of the raw red cabbage, especially when adding some acid to it is so nice! When cooking it, it looks quite sad.
Red cabbage with lime
- 1/2 red cabbage head
- 2 limes
- 1 onion, brown or red
- 2 garlic cloves
- Use a mixer with a shaving blade to shave the cabbage and onion as finely as possible, or a knife if you don’t have a mixer.
- Put the cabbage in a bowl and squeeze some salt into it.
- Press the garlic and lime and add into the cabbage.
- Let it rest in the fridge for a couple of hours before eating.
We had the salad together with chicken legs and steamed broccoli topped with butter. Broccoli and lime goes very well with each other as well! The chicken leg was seasoned with turmeric, chili and herbs. It turned into a delicious and pretty dinner!
No need to eat all the salad at once, it can simply be saved in the fridge for a couple of days at least.
