Listen friends, I LOVE a Cabbage Salad. But a coleslaw... no thank you. Give me a bright cabbage salad that's reminiscent of a slaw but with a citrus vinaigrette and we are in business!

Why I Love This Recipe

I'm truly obsessed with this recipe. It's bright, crunchy, refreshing and perfectly seasoned. The cabbage stays crispy so you can prep it ahead of time, the herbs are a lovely pop of flavor, the lemon and olive make the perfect dressing and the dried mint just sends it over the edge. I kid you not, you could serve this alongside some ribs, some salmon, some chicken or underneath some grilled vegetables and it will boggle your mind!

  • The dressing can be prepped a few days in advance too!

FAQ's

Can you eat raw cabbage in a salad?

Sure can - raw cabbage is delish when dressed properly

What's the difference between coleslaw and cabbage salad?

Coleslaw usually is a creamy dressing - this cabbage salad is not creamy at all! It's a vinaigrette based dressing which keeps it lighter and brighter in my opinion!
