My favorite kind of salads are simple – using fresh ingredients and homemade condiments.
This simple salad was inspired by my friend from Azerbaijan. She’s a remarkable lady who works wonders in the kitchen.
We both have a love of vegetables and I adore her many Russian renditions especially when it comes to using yogurt in her dishes.
Last week she made a similar salad using cabbage, cucumbers, and fresh from the garden parsley. It looked so delicious that I decided to make my own variation.
A simple salad that taste as fresh as the morning dew in Spring.
A Simple, Seasonal, Cabbage Salad with Mint
- 1/2 a large cabbage, finely chopped
- 2 carrots, shredded
- 1 tbls fresh mint, chiffonade
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise (I used all extra virgin olive oil to make this mayonnaise)
- 3/4 cup yogurt
- Juice of 1/2 a lemon
- 1/2 tsp salt
Toss all ingredients in a large bowl and allow to rest in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours or preferably overnight.
