Cabbage and Leek Salad

Cabbage and Leek Salad

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cabbage, finely shredded
  • 2 leek leaves(the green part)
  • 1 red jalapeno, seeds and veins removed( you can substitute it with a sweet red pepper)
  • salt to taste
  • 2-3 TBS extra virgin olive oil
  • 2-4 TBS apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds( you can toast them if you like)
  • a pinch of sugar(optional)
  • * variation...you can add a bit of sesame oil and sesame seeds, use rice wine vinegar.... You can also substitute the leek with green onion.

Directions

  1. Julienne the cabbage, leeks and pepper.
  2. 2. Mix together with hands so that the cabbage softens a bit...do this for about a minute or so. The more you mix, the softer the cabbage.
  3. 3. Add oil, vinegar and salt....pepper if you like.
  4. 4. Taste and adjust seasoning. I find the cabbage tends to ask for a bit more vinegar than normal salads.
  5. 5. Mix in almonds.
