Make Ahead

Red Cabbage Salad

Author Notes

This salad is so easy to make and so lightly delicious – fresh purple cabbage tossed with a good olive oil, some sea salt, apple cider vinegar and a little lemon. Make it an hour ahead or let it sit in the fridge overnight. The great thing about this salad is the longer it sits the better it gets! —coffeefoodwrite
