Lemon-Mint Cabbage Salad

Sep 25, 2013

Tonight's dinner: Grilled Chicken Legs with Lemon-Mint Cabbage Salad. The dried cranberries add some sweetness and I'm a sucker for mint! I use a mix of red cabbage and green cabbage to make this salad a little more colorful. But, I also mix in red cabbage since they are much higher in Vitamin C than their green counterparts. Note: I love this salad the next day...if there's any left!!!



2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp sugar

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1 tbsp olive oil

3 cups red cabbage, shredded

3 cups green cabbage, shredded

1 tbsp fresh dill (or 1 tsp dried dill)

2 tbsp chopped fresh mint

2 tbsp chopped cilantro

1/3 cup dried cranberries


In a small bowl, mix garlic, salt, sugar, and lemon juice. Combine the cabbage, dill, mint, cilantro, and cranberries in a salad bowl and toss with the dressing. Let salad "marinate" for about 20 minutes. Serves 6.
