  • 5 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • 5 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil, optional
  • 2 cups cabbage, very finely shredded


Servings 6


Step 1

In a small bowl, combine vinegar, oil, sugar, salt, pepper, oregano and basil.

Place the cabbage in a separate large bowl and pour the dressing over. Using clean hands, squeeze and knead the cabbage well to release juices.

Do a taste test and adjust the flavor to your preference.

Put a heavy bowl on top of the salad and weigh it down. Leave the salad to rest overnight in the refrigerator.

I usually make a bigger batch than I have written up here because this cabbage salad makes a marvelous accompaniment to other dishes too. It keeps well for 5 to 6 in the fridge. When the salad starts to smell like an old scouring cloth, it's time to throw it away.
