When i made my Tandoori chicken, i was thinking that i really wanted a nice crunchy raw salad to go with it that had a bit of bite. I had bought some cabbage from the super market the other day to make something completely different, but suddenly it got my attention and i thought that i would use them to make a delicious crunchy spiced salad to accompany this dish. You can serve this on its own if you like as it has weight to get through as a meal on its own.
Also cabbage is great for you as it is full of vitamin C, amino acids and has anti inflammatory properties. It is also used widely in diets as it is very low in calories. It also help with the thyroid, and also relieving swollen body parts! Who knew a small bowl of delicious cabbage salad would be so good for you.
This salad, has bite, flavour, and spice!
1/2 red cabbage
1/2 white cabbage
4 Tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
2 Tablespoons of lemon
2 teaspoons of salt
1 Tablespoon of cumin
chili flakes or Tabasco (to your taste)
- Slice your cabbage into thin slices
- Mix the rest of the ingredients together and pour on top of the cabbage.
- Massage the sauce into the cabbage to tenderize it a little and serve.
