Red Cabbage, Carrot, Fennel and Orange Salad











This salad is one of our favourites in the Veg shed when winter comfortably abides the farm. Quick and easy, it goes very well with potato mash!

From the cupboard for the dressing:

  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  1. Shred thinly the red cabbage and fennel. Grate the carrots. Peal and cube or wedge the oranges. Before adding the dressing massage the cabbage with salt.
  2. Mix the dressing and adjust to your taste.
