Red cabbage pickle

IMG_0970This is pretty similar to the red cabbage that you get in the kebab shops all over the UK (and possibly the rest of the world but I don’t know).

I like it with grilled meats and falafel wrapped in a pitta.


Half a red cabbage, washed and finely shredded

2 tbs of table salt

juice of half a lemon

olive oil


Sprinkle the salt over the shredded cabbage and leave it in a colander set over a bowl or in the sink.

After about 15-20 mins, squeeze the cabbage very hard and let the salty juices run out. Repeat a few times. Place in a bowl and add the lemon juice and a tablespoon of olive oil and mix well.
