Ingrid’s RED CABBAGE AND APPLE SLAW

red cabbage and apple slaw

It’s true! Cabbages have such high vitamin and nutrition levels – it can help regulate blood pressure, can treat stomach ulcers, it can even lower the risk of lung cancer in smokers and most importantly it has strong anti- ageing properties. We should be eating a cabbage a day to keep the doctor away.
This is such a simple salad to throw together, and it makes a nice light change from coleslaw usually weighted down with mayonnaise.

What you need

Serves 4
2 x Apples (grated or sliced thinly)
1/2 red cabbage (shredded thinly)
Bunch of flat leaf parsley (chopped roughly)
(Note: Remember to keep your cabbage cold, it helps to retain its vitamin content.)

Apple dressing

What you need

1 grated apple (fine grate)
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
3 Tbsp Rice Wine or White Wine Vinegar]
1/2 lemon (squeezed)
Pinch of brown sugar (takes the tartness away)
Pepper to taste

How to make

In a food processor, pulse all ingredients for about 30 secs. If you don’t have a food processor (I didn’t,  as I was away from home), just grate apples on the finest grate and mix.

Assemble

Put salad ingredients in a bowl, adding the grated apple just before serving (so it doesn’t go brown). Work through the dressing, coating all the salad ingredients.
