Red Cabbage, Fennel and Mandarin Salad

Aug 21, 2008   //   by myrakelly   //   Recipes  //  No Comments

This is a fantastic winter salad with amazing colour and a good sweet/savory balance. It’s full of vitamin C to keep away colds in the chilly months. It’s good to use a mandoline to help you to slice things finely which brings out the flavour more. Always try to use organic ingredients where possible.

Serves 1-2

Ingredients

1/4 of a red cabbage

1 fennel bulb

4-5 mandarins

1 lemon

1 orange

a good splash of cold-pressed olive oil

a sprinkling of himalayan salt

Method

Using a mandoline, shred the cabbage and fennel. If you don’t have a mandoline you could use a food processor or slice finely with a knife.

Halve the orange and slice a few pieces off with the mandoline to save as a garnish. Juice the rest of the orange and the lemon.

Peel the mandarins and break into segments.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl to serve.

Optional Extra: This is also great with some chunks of avocado mushed into the salad. It combines nicely with the juices.

Enjoy!
