oil & vinegar cabbage salad

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our full disclosure.

This cabbage salad is tossed in an oil and vinegar dressing that is light and tangy.

Another recipe I really liked after trying at our friend’s house in SC. Lily has already shared her Creamy Spinach Tilapia dish with me (which by the way is one the most popular recipes here) and her creamy skillet potatoes. This oil and vinegar cabbage salad is definitely a nice one to have handy, especially for a good way to use up a cabbage in a tasty way. I love the hint of vinegar in an oil-based dressing its tangy but in a good way. If you don’t like cilantro, parsley can be easily be adapted.  Enjoy.

    This is my go to salad to bring everywhere! Thank you Alyona for sharing this. It is delicious and simple to make. The tomatoes I have been using are my currant tomatoes from the garden and I use 2 parts Sherry vinegar and 1 part rice vinegar. So good!Just yesterday at our block party, it was a rave with everyone!

    I am pleased to see somebody else enjoying this crunchy take on the traditional garden salad. I have used Balsamic and Red Wine vinegars, as well. It is all good all of the time. Yum!
    Fresh Basil or Mint are also, delicious substitutes for the Cilantro depending on the Main Dish. This is very versatile.

    Did you use Apple cider vinegar ?

      • Alyona Demyanchuk

      I think I used regular distilled but apple cider vinegar should probably work.
