Savoy Cabbage, Kohlrabi and Grapefruit Salad

  • SERVINGS: 4
  • VEGETARIAN

This crisp, vibrant slaw would go well alongside any kind of baked fish drizzled with a little citrus juice.

  1. One 1 1/4-pound head of Savoy cabbage, finely shredded (4 packed cups)
  2. Kosher salt
  3. 1 red grapefruit
  4. 1/4 cup grapeseed or other mild oil
  5. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  6. Freshly ground pepper
  7. 1 3/4 pounds kohlrabi, peeled and coarsely grated
  8. 2 tablespoons finely shredded mint leaves, plus whole leaves for garnish
  1. In a large glass or ceramic bowl, toss the shredded cabbage with 1 tablespoon of salt. Weight down with a heavy plate topped with canned goods and refrigerate the cabbage for 1 hour.
  2. Using a sharp knife, peel the grapefruit, removing all of the bitter white pith. Working over a bowl, cut in between the membranes to release the sections. Squeeze 2 tablespoons of the juice from the membranes into a small bowl. Whisk in the oil and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Squeeze the cabbage dry and transfer it to a large bowl. Add the kohlrabi and vinaigrette and toss well. Add the grapefruit sections and shredded mint and toss again. Mound the salad on plates, garnish with mint leaves and serve.

Suggested Pairing

A tangy white with slightly herbal notes would harmonize well with this salad. Try a crisp Italian wine.
