Cabbage and Jalapeno Salad
Recipe type: Salad
Serves: 6-8
Refreshing cabbage salad
  • 1 head of cabbage, finely shredded
  • 3 medium leeks
  • 2 jalapenos, diced
  • ½ bunch of cilantro, chopped
  • 5-6 limes, juiced
  • ¾ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Cut and remove the stem and core of the cabbage. Clean and slice the cabbage in half and slice each half to create quarters. Thinly slice into small strips.
  2. Use just the white and a small portion of green parts only of the leeks. Carefully clean the leeks by peeling the layers apart under a stream of water, and cut them into thin rounds.
  3. Halve the jalapenos and remove the seeds. Dice into small pieces.
  4. Add cabbage, leeks and jalapenos into a large bowl.
  5. Combine the lime juice, olive oil, and salt and pepper into a smaller bowl and whisk together.
  6. Drizzle the salad with the dressing, top with cilantro and serve.
