"This recipe was given me by my aunt, who loves Mediterranean cooking. A delicious, refreshing salad made from shredded cabbage and a dressing made from lemon, garlic, olive oil, and cilantro. The proportions I listed will at least start you out with a dressing that's not too strong, but feel free to play around with them. This salad is more of an art than a science." — OBIWAN120

cabbage, cored and shredded
chopped fresh cilantro
I really like this salad. I had a friend in Cali that used to make it all the time. If you like the fresh taste of cabbage, this is the "cole slaw" for you. However, if you are expecting the traditional mayonnaise tasting dish, this is not for you. Be adventurous and give it a try! I recommend using a little garlic salt to add pizzazz.
This was bland and horrible!
Mix the dressing together in a separate bowl before adding to the cabbage for more even distribution. Freshly minced garlic is so much better. I didn't have cilantro so I used parsley instead. Don't forget the salt and pepper. A good base to add further vegetables to.
I made this salad for Japanese Tonkatsu (which you can find on this site) I didn't have fresh cilantro so I omitted it, and I added lemon pepper and orange. It might be really good if I followed the recipe exactly. Thank you.
I didn't really care for the dressing this salad called for. It just tasted like lemon juice to me. I ended up adding Italian dressing to the cabbage and that was pretty good.
I am always looking for something new to make for my husband and family. This is a side dish I will probably not make again. Wasn't good at all. My husband didn't even eat it and I just ate it cause I had already made it and don't like to put food to waste.
