This incredibly easy salad turns inexpensive cabbage into a fresh side dish. For the dressing use the freshest lemon, both juice and zest. The seeds and dried fruits will light your salad with a lot of colors !


Finely shredded green or red cabbage, half of it

2 garlic cloves, pressed

3 tablespoon dried fruits and seeds

One Lemon juice and zest

100 ml / 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste


In a small bowl, whisk together the garlic, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper, lemon juice, lemon zest and set aside.

In a large bowl, toss the cabbage  with the dried fruits and seeds. Pour dressing over the cabbage. Garnish with dried fruits and seeds and serve.

* NOTE : to shred the cabbage I use a very sharp mandolin or a food processor with a fine grate disc. To add more colors, feel free to mix to the cabbage other vegetables; sometimes I use carrots or radicchio, cut into julienne strips.
