I am loving working with cabbage! This recipe is a raw dish and is great for spring and summer picnics.
6 cups very thinly sliced cabbage
1 1/2 cups peeled and grated carrots
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
Place cabbage and carrots in a colander; rinse thoroughly with cold water to crisp. Let drain for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk cilantro, vinegar, oil and salt in a large bowl. Add cabbage and carrots; toss well to coat. Once prepared, serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Toss again to refresh just before serving.
