Move over coleslaw, this fresh and crispy cabbage salad with lemon garlic dressing is our new staple Summer side dish! You'll love the tangy dressing!


  • One 10 oz. package shredded green cabbage
  • 2 Roma tomatoes (quartered)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 T lemon juice
  • 2 T olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. In a large bowl, smash the minced garlic until it is a paste.
  2. Whisk in the lemon juice and olive oil.
  3. Toss in the cabbage and tomatoes.
  4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss again.
  5. Refrigerate for at least two hours before serving.


I used packaged shredded cabbage for a short cut but you can use your food processor to shred fresh cabbage, too. I like Roma tomatoes because they are smaller and have less seeds and juice inside. As for the dressing, you can adjust the amount of lemon and garlic to taste.
