Directions

  1. Chop the red cabbage very thinly and place in a bowl. Add a teaspoon of salt and gently toss the cabbage with your hands, squishing it lightly between your palms to make it more tender. Do this for a minute.
  2. Peel the skin from the carrot. Using your normal peeler or a mandolin slicer, peel thin strips of carrots and add to the salad. Wash the radishes and cut off the ends. Using a mandolin slicer or a sharp knife, cut the radishes into thin slivers. Add radishes and greens to the salad bowl and toss to combine.
  3. Seed the pomegranate by scoring with a knife it around the center, then twisting it until in pops into two halves. Place one of the halves face down in your hand and whack it several times with a wooden spoon to make the seeds fall out.
  4. Add pomegranate seeds, hazelnuts, cilantro and fennel seeds to the bowl. Add salt and a crack of pepper.
  5. Make the dressing by vigorously whisking together the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Divide the salad into plates and serve with a drizzle of dressing.
