Red Cabbage Salad with Lemon & Black Pepper

I made this salad from Orangette last weekend with our homemade fish and chips.  It was uncomplicated to make and had a very nice, uncomplicated, fresh flavor.  Also, the red cabbage makes a very pretty presentation and was a welcome bit of color on our plates.  We loved it and I wanted to share it with you, too.

  1. To make dressing, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and salt.  Set aside.
  2. With sharp knife, shred cabbage as thinly as possible. (1/4”)
