Cabbage Slaw

Here’s a quick and easy dish to put together as a light meal or side that’s sure to last for at least a few days between two people.  The one thing that makes it possible is a reliable mandolin.  I got mine at a local home retailer for less than $30 and it keeps finding ways to be useful.

Ingredients
1/2 head of cabbage
1/2 red onion
1 red bell pepper
1 carrot
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 Tbsp rice vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

Method

Slice cabbage, red onion, and pepper using a mandolin. I have it set to the straight blade at 1/8th inch, but other blade options will vary things up–experiment and let me know how it goes.

Toss above ingredients in a large bowl and grate carrot into the mixture.

Add olive oil and rice vinegar, and toss.

Let the salad rest for at least 4 hours (it gets better as it ages), then serve.
