Red Cabbage Salad (Kırmızı Lahana Salatası)
A wonderful and tasty alternative to the regular green cabbage, red cabbage is full of antioxidants. The purplish color resembles the colors of blackberries which also contain lots of antioxidants. When I go shopping, I always try to get different colors of vegetables and fruits in order to get a variety of nutrients in our diets. Red cabbage is one of my favorite of the colorful veggies which I usually use for salad making. This salad is healthy, tasty and visually appealing.
1 small head red cabbage
3 large carrots
½ cup chopped parsley
1-2 tbsp olive oil
Salt to taste
Cut the cabbage head in two. Slice each half in thin slices and place in a large salad bowl. Grate the carrots and add to the cabbage along with the parsley. Add the salt on top of the vegetables. Squeeze the lemons on top and drizzle with olive oil. Toss and serve.
