Every now and then I feel like I need a quick winter salad—like an orange and red cabbage salad with dates, for example.
And for an extra crunch I simply add some chopped walnuts, that’s so delicious!
For me, this is the ideal winter salad because it is packed with vitamins and simply tastes soooo good.
What goes into the red cabbage salad?
Of course, first of all, red cabbage.
Then I add some oranges for freshness.
Add a few chopped dates for the sweetness and, as already mentioned, chopped walnuts for the crunch.
And then of course a quick dressing with ingredients that you always have at home. And if you don’t have any date vinegar, you can use a balsamic vinegar reduction as a substitute.
How is the salad prepared?
First, you have to cut the red cabbage into very fine strips. This is best done with a mandolin, but please be careful not to cut yourself. That can happen pretty quickly. Unfortunately, I know this from my own experience.
But otherwise I just don’t get the red cabbage slices as fine as with a mandolin. I’m always amazed. Add some salt and sugar to it and let stand for a while.
You need to fillet the oranges for the red cabbage salad, and then I use the juice and the orange fillets.
But that’s not as difficult as you might think. First cut off the two ends of the orange and then use a sharp knife to cut off the peel from top to bottom. It’s like being peeled off.
It is important that you also cut off the white of the skin. It tastes slightly bitter an, and I just don’t like it. 😉
Then you cut out the individual fillets from the orange chambers with a knife and the orange is already filleted and you have nothing but small orange fillets.
And then all I have to do is squeeze the juice from the rest of the orange and add it to the dressing, which I then finish right away.
All you have to do then is chop the walnuts and dates and sprinkle them on top.
And tada, your red cabbage salad is ready.
And that goes well with it:
Freshly baked bread or some goat cheese go great with it.
Enjoy your beautiful red cabbage salad!
