Cabbage Apple Slaw

Cabbage Apple Slaw
This is a very easy salad to put together and with very few ingredients as well. Often times I have this with fried anything as a foil from the grease and fat. I find it very refreshing also with roasted or barbecued meat dishes.

This is adapted from the NHK channel's Rika's Tokyo Cuisine recipe. We as a family actually enjoy watching NHK's offerings especially when it comes to their food shows. You should see us drooling, ooh-ing and aah-ing at every dish we fancy. Armchair foodies we definitely are. :)

1/4 head [about 250 g] cabbage
1/2 apple
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 Tbsp lemon juice
lemon zest (optional)
1/4 tsp sugar
2 Tbsp mayonnaise
  1. Finely shred the cabbage and apple (with a knife or mandolin) and put separately into different bowls.
  2. Add the salt and pepper into the shredded cabbage and gently work into the cabbage until it softens.
  3. Add the shredded apple, lemon juice, and lemon jest. Mix well.
  4. Combine the sugar and mayonnaise. Add to the cabbage and apple mixture and mix well to coat the veggies.
  5. Serve cold or room temperature.

I'm sure your cabbage apple slaw is perfect side for any of my fried or grilled fish fillet dishes.

It is very good with any fried dishes, Ernesto. And very easy to make, too.
