Fresh Cabbage Salad With Lemon

So fresh, crunchy, tasty, and best of all, so easy!  Makes a fantastic side salad!

Servings 4


  • 1 lb. (approximately 6 cups ) finely sliced green cabbage
  • 2 tablespoons grape seed or olive oil (a lighter oil does taste best)
  • 1 lemon or Meyer lemon juiced (approximately 2-3 tablespoons)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper


  1. With a sharp knife, cut the cabbage in half.  Finely slice one half of the cabbage  (do not use a grater). If needed, slice more of the other half of the cabbage.   Place into a medium-large sized bowl.  

    Squeeze the juice of one lemon onto the cabbage.  

    Add the oil, parsley, salt and pepper.

    Mix well, then taste and adjust if needed with a little more lemon juice or salt.
