Cabbage Salad Dressing
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (or another kind of vinegar)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  2. Peel and thinly slice the cucumber and place in a bowl. Chop the green onions and add to the bowl. Add the cabbage then drizzle the dressing on top. Toss to combine and serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve. When ready to serve, taste to ensure seasoning is okay then adjust if needed before serving.

Recipe Notes

1. This cabbage salad will keep well for 2 days in the fridge.

2. Instead of a regular cucumber, you could use an English cucumber. No need to peel if you choose to use an English cucumber.
