About this recipe:Teaming red cabbage with sweet ingredients, as in sweet and sour cabbage with apples, is a feature of Central European cooking.
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
Directions Prep:20min › Extra time:15min › Ready in:35min
Discard thick outer leaves of cabbage and cut the cabbage into quarters. Remove the core and slice cabbage thinly. Place in a serving bowl.
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.
Peel and segment oranges and mandarins. Cut into small pieces over a bowl to catch the juices; discard seeds. Combine fruit and cabbage.
Whisk reserved citrus juice, oil, vinegar and pepper until combined. Stir into salad. Top with walnuts.
