PURPLE CABBAGE SALAD


This lovely salad was adapted from Amee’s Savory Dish. I adjusted to better suit our tastes and changed the nut due to the simple the fact that I could not find the pine nuts I bought for this and I found some sliced almonds instead. Oh I am sure the pine nuts would have added an extra dimension to the flavours, but overall the salad was most enjoyable and it is a keeper.

8 cups thinly sliced purple cabbage
3 carrots, julienned
1 shallot, finely diced
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 packet of Bovril chicken flavoured instant bouillon
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Juice of 1 mandarin orange
2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup raisins
1 mandarin orange, in segments
1/4 cup chopped or sliced nuts [I used almonds]

• Remove the outer layers of cabbage.
• Wash and cut the cabbage into four parts.
• Cut out the hard stem.
• Slice into very thin strips and cut the strips into 1-2 inch segments
• Place in the bowl.
• Wash and peel the carrots and cut off the ends.
• First julienne the carrots and then chop them into 2 inch segments.
• Add to the bowl.
• Finely chop the shallots and add to the bowl.
• Add salt and pepper to taste; and toss.
• Add the brown sugar, bouillon packet, garlic powder, mandarin juice, red wine vinegar and the olive oil.
• Toss well.
• Add the dried cranberries, raisins and the mandarin segments and toss.
• Sprinkle the top with the nuts and serve.

  3. A beautiful colourful salad once more! I will start making cabbage salads when the weather gets colder. Somehow I am in need of green lettuce leaves, tomatoes and cucumbers now :-)
    You know, there is a Polish way to prepare red cabbage with raisins, but I think it's cooked. I must check (my mum never did it so I only have a vague idea).
