This light, tangy salad could not be simpler: shredded green cabbage tossed with lemon, garlic, olive oil and salt. Wonderful with fish, the salad is also a popular accompaniment to kaftah, or Middle Eastern braised ground beef.

  1. 1 garlic clove
  2. 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  3. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  4. 2 pounds green cabbage, cored and finely shredded
  5. Kosher salt
  1. In a mortar, pound the garlic to a puree. Stir in the lemon juice and olive oil.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the cabbage with the dressing. Season with salt and toss again. Serve right away or lightly chilled.
