Red Cabbage, Fennel and Mandarin Salad
This is a fantastic winter salad with amazing colour and a good sweet/savory balance. It’s full of vitamin C to keep away colds in the chilly months. It’s good to use a mandoline to help you to slice things finely which brings out the flavour more. Always try to use organic ingredients where possible.
1/4 of a red cabbage
1 fennel bulb
a good splash of cold-pressed olive oil
a sprinkling of himalayan salt
Using a mandoline, shred the cabbage and fennel. If you don’t have a mandoline you could use a food processor or slice finely with a knife.
Halve the orange and slice a few pieces off with the mandoline to save as a garnish. Juice the rest of the orange and the lemon.
Peel the mandarins and break into segments.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl to serve.
Optional Extra: This is also great with some chunks of avocado mushed into the salad. It combines nicely with the juices.
