 At the end of my Spanish Beach vacation :-/ my in Law are visiting us. They are great cooking traditional recipes and finding superb ingredients, so I asked them to prepare one of my favorite salads. So simple, so healthy, so delicious! I´ve decided to name it Jessica´s cabbage salad because Jessica, a good friend and the best 24 hours Bellevue downtown trainer loved it when I gave her my recipe.

You only need a cabbage, extra virgin olive oil, sherry vinegar, salt and black pepper (better just grounded for the salad). The secret is to chop it super thin (look at the picture) and to soak it in water for a few hours. The leaves will be crispier…

Finally dress the cabbage with salt, vinegar, olive oil and grounded pepper. The quantity depends on your taste. I particularly prefer a short spirt of vinegar, and a moderate quantity of pepper because I don´t like strong flavors but It´s your choice!

Raw cabbage is a vitamins and antioxidants bomb, especially vitamin A, a perfect friend to recover from fatigue and anemia problems. Popular tradition says that this veggie helps you if you´re breast feeding too.

Cabbage salad is your perfect garnish for your summer barbecue. Refreshing and super easy to prepare. Open a sparkling rosé bottle of wine and enjoy!
