One of my favorite sides when ordering from a delicious restaurant in LA and Glendale called Carousel is a lemony, garlicky cabbage salad. I stumbled across a recipe that says it came from someone’s Lebanese mom, so it seemed like it could work. It was simple and delicious and tasted just right!
Here’s what you need:
1 head green cabbage, finely shredded
1 tablespoon salt
4-6 cloves garlic, crushed or smashed
1 tablespoon dried mint
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
Here’s what you do:
1. Massage the cabbage with the salt and allow to rest for 20 minutes. Drain off liquid, rinse the cabbage, and drain again.
2. Mix the cabbage together with the garlic, mint, lemon and olive oil.
3. Allow to sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
