Cabbage Slaw

Here's a quick and easy dish to put together as a light meal or side that's sure to last for at least a few days between two people.  The one thing that makes it possible is a reliable mandolin.  I got mine at a local home retailer for less than $30 and it keeps finding ways to be useful.

  • 1/2 head of cabbage
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 red pepper (or other pepper, your preference)
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp rice vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
How to:

  • Run cabbage, red onion, and your pepper of choice through the mandolin.  I have it set to the straight blade at 1/8th inch, but other blade options will vary things up--experiment and let me know how it goes.
  • Toss above ingredients in a large bowl and grate carrot into the mixture.
  • Add olive oil and rice vinegar, and toss.
  • Let sit at least 4 hours, and serve.  It does get better as it ages.
