Minty Cabbage Salad

My friend Katie recently returned from her adventures abroad in Denmark, Germany, and France. She brought back with her beautiful pictures, wonderful stories, and the recipe for this salad. She actually got it from an Australian woman she met there, so this recipe is essentially global!

It's amazing how a dish with three simple ingredients can really shine, but this one does. It's bright and fresh and a versatile side dish. I had it placed on my plate next to some chopped nectarines and strawberries. When the fruit was nearly gone, I tried combining it with the salad and found it was a great addition. Next time I'm going to try mixing fruit in from the start!

Minty Cabbage Salad
recipe from Katie's Australian friend :)

-1 small head of cabbage, shredded
-1 handful mint, chopped
-1 lemon

1. Shred cabbage with a food processor or chop into small pieces. Mix with chopped mint.
2. Squeeze a lemon over the salad and mix well. Serve immediately or refrigerate until serving.
*I think adding the zest of the lemon would also be good if you really want lemony flavor!
