Cabbage Salad with Lemon-Garlic Dressing

Cabbage Salad with Lemon-Garlic Dressing


"This recipe was given me by my aunt, who loves Mediterranean cooking. A delicious, refreshing salad made from shredded cabbage and a dressing made from lemon, garlic, olive oil, and cilantro. The proportions I listed will at least start you out with a dressing that's not too strong, but feel free to play around with them. This salad is more of an art than a science."

Mix the dressing together in a separate bowl before adding to the cabbage for more even distribution. Freshly minced garlic is so much better. I didn't have cilantro so I used parsley instead. D...

I made this salad for Japanese Tonkatsu (which you can find on this site) I didn't have fresh cilantro so I omitted it, and I added lemon pepper and orange. It might be really good if I followed...

This was bland and horrible!

Good basic recipe for a lighter tasting cole slaw, but it really needs some salt and pepper. Okay, I just rated the actual recipe, not my version. I made this as a garnish for fish tacos. Here'...

I didn't really care for the dressing this salad called for. It just tasted like lemon juice to me. I ended up adding Italian dressing to the cabbage and that was pretty good.
