    35 mins

    Teaming red cabbage with sweet ingredients, as in sweet and sour cabbage with apples, is a feature of Central European cooking.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 small red cabbage (about 750g)
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 2 medium oranges
    • 3 small mandarins
    • 3 tablespoons walnut oil
    • 2 to 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
    • freshly ground black pepper
    • 55 g walnuts, coarsely chopped

    Prep:20min  ›  Extra time:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Discard thick outer leaves of cabbage and cut the cabbage into quarters. Remove the core and slice cabbage thinly. Place in a serving bowl.
    2. Sprinkle cabbage with salt. Knead firmly by hand for about 5 minutes; the cabbage will soften slightly and become milder in flavour. Leave 15 minutes then rinse under cold running water in a colander and drain.
    3. Peel and segment oranges and mandarins. Cut into small pieces over a bowl to catch the juices; discard seeds. Combine fruit and cabbage.
    4. Whisk reserved citrus juice, oil, vinegar and pepper until combined. Stir into salad. Top with walnuts.

    Delicious! I loved the combinations. Esp. the the use of both mandarin and orange. The walnuts made a great texture contrast and the red wine vinegar balanced it. I'll make it again for sure.  -  20 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
