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.
