Spicy Red Cabbage Salad

I was not much of a salad person as far as I can remember, but since the last couple of months I have been enjoying different kinds of salads like never before. This Spicy Red Cabbage Slaw or Salad currently tops my list of most favourite salads. The crunch of red cabbage and carrot, the sweetness of onion, the salty boiled peanuts and the fresh flavour of basil makes this salad an interesting one. I have kept the salad dressing quite simple by adding spicy red chilli flakes and freshly squeezed lime juice to extra virgin olive oil and it gives the nice kick to the whole crunchy vegetables. You can serve it on its own as a light meal or use them as a stuffing for wraps or pitta bread with a spread or sauce of your choice to make a complete meal.


½ head of medium Red Cabbage (about 4 loosely packed cups), thinly sliced
1 large or ¾ cup Carrot, peeled and cut into match stick pieces or julienned
1 large or ¾ cup Red Onion, peeled, halved and thinly sliced
½ – ¾ cup Raw Peanuts
Few Basil Leaves or Coriander Leaves, chopped
Salt to taste

For Spicy Olive Oil Dressing:
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1-2 tsp red Chilli Flakes (Adjust as per taste)
½ Lime, juice extracted (Adjust as per taste)
