Cabbage Salad with Lemon-Garlic Dressing

Cabbage Salad with Lemon-Garlic Dressing

  • Prep

  • Ready In


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.

I really like this salad. I had a friend in Cali that used to make it all the time. If you like the fresh taste of cabbage, this is the "cole slaw" for you. However, if you are expecting the traditional mayonnaise tasting dish, this is not for you. Be adventurous and give it a try! I recommend using a little garlic salt to add pizzazz.


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. Don't forget the salt and pepper. A good base to add further vegetables to.

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 the recipe exactly. Thank you.
