Easy Cabbage Salad
You’ll love this easy salad recipe for everyday cooking! First, choose a great head of cabbage. I like to use Napa or Chinese cabbage because it tends to be sweeter and softer. Young, summer cabbage also works well. Shred the cabbage into thin strips. If you’re using firm cabbage, massage the cabbage with your hands for a minute before adding the remaining ingredients.
Next, add the cucumbers, almonds, dill and green onions. I like to dress this salad simply with salt, olive oil and lemon juice. Allow the salad to stand for a few minutes before enjoying for the best flavor. Making this cucumber salad ahead of time? Leave off the dressing until ready to serve!
This refreshing and crunchy cabbage salad is a family favorite! Growing up, we had this salad at least twice a week during the summer with garden-fresh vegetables! My mom grew her own cabbages, cucumbers, tomatoes, green onion and even dill! I love adding toasted almond slivers for extra crunch. Even though it’s not a traditional addition, it’s just what the salad needs. And, to finish the salad off, a bit of freshly-squeezed Meyer lemon juice for zestfulness!
