Full Recipe:


  • 200-400 grams cabbage (about 4-8 cups), thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 1 green apple, thinly sliced
  • 1 spring onion, thinly sliced
  • Dill or parsley, chopped (optional, for added flavor)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt, to taste



  1. In a large salad bowl, combine the thinly sliced cabbage, shredded carrot, thinly sliced green apple, and thinly sliced spring onion. If using, add the chopped dill or parsley to the bowl for a fresh flavor boost.
  2. In a small bowl or a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the lemon juice, olive oil, and salt. Whisk or shake well until the dressing is emulsified.
  3. Pour the dressing over the salad ingredients in the large bowl. Toss gently but thoroughly to ensure all the components are well coated with the dressing.
  4. For the best flavor, let the salad sit for about 10 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to meld together. This also gives the cabbage and carrot a chance to soften slightly in the dressing while still retaining their crunch.
