Lebanese Cabbage Salad (Malfouf Salad)

Lebanese Cabbage Salad (Malfouf Salad)

If you want a little variation from the classic cabbage salad, I recommend trying its Lebanese version. Of course, it's somewhat more interesting, richer in flavors and colors, but definitely delicious and nutritious.

You can serve it as such or with any vegetable garnish or meat, but it also works very well in the homemade Falafel or Shawarma.


White cabbage
500 g
Green onions
1 piece
Fresh parsley
1 bunch
Garlic cloves

Extravirgin olive oil

Dried mint leaves

Press it lightly with your hands.

If it's new, spring cabbage, don't insist. For winter cabbage, I recommend you press it better, as it's tougher and denser.
