Middle Eastern cabbage salad

Serves 4 10 min
The classic Middle Eastern trio of mint, parsley and spring onions transforms raw cabbage into a a delicious and healthy salad. This vegan recipe works very nicely with both green cabbage and purple - just make sure to shred it fine and feathery. Let it stand for a few minutes before eating to give the cabbage time to soften slightly in the lemon juice.


  • ½ medium cabbage (about 400g), very finely shredded
  • 2-3 tomatoes, deseeded and diced
  • 2-3 spring onions or 1 small regular onion, finely sliced
  • handful flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • few fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed or finely chopped
  • salt and pepper
