In Sweden, almost any pizzeria you come across will serve a simple cabbage salad to go along withcabbage_salad your pizza. The cabbage salad basically consists of shredded cabbage, and a vinaigrette with white wine vinegar, oil, salt, sugar and lots of black pepper. It has a strong vinegar taste, is quite oily and is quite good in its simplicity, perfect to make at home.

Cabbage is cheap, crunchy and stays for a few days in the fridge, so we like to make a big batch just to have around. Believe it or not, it goes very well on the side with some pizza! Sometimes we add a few carrots for color and taste, as well as some garlic and mustard - however if you’re a traditionalist you might want to take a pass on those ingredients…

Ingredients:

  • 1 small head of cabbage, shredded
  • 4 carrots, peeled and grated

Vinaigrette (approximate measurements):

  • 7 tablespoons vegetable oil (not olive oil)
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 3 garlic cloves, pressed

  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
