Description

This Savoy cabbage salad is a tasty mix of cabbage, apples, walnuts, with an apple cider vinaigrette tossed with Parmesan cheese. 


Ingredients

Scale
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
  • 2 pinches kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1 head Savoy cabbage*
  • 2 apples
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese shavings (or Pecorino Romano)

Instructions

  1. For the dressing, whisk together the olive oil, cider vinegar, honey, kosher salt, and fresh ground black pepper.
  2. If desired, toast the walnuts by placing them in a dry skillet over low heat for several minutes, stirring frequently, until slightly browned and fragrant. Immediately remove from the heat into a bowl.
  3. Thinly slice the cabbage. Core 2 apples and chop them. (If not eating immediately, sprinkle the apples with a bit of lemon juice to prevent browning.) Using a vegetable peeler, shave the Parmesan or Pecorino Romano cheese.
  4. To serve, place cabbage on a serving plate, then top with apples, walnuts, cheese, and dressing.

Notes

*Use Savoy cabbage in this recipe, which is light and fluffy; avoid substituting green or red cabbage as it has quite a different texture.
