Raw Vegan Swedish Cabbage Pizza Salad Recipe

As unlikely as the association might sound, it seems like everywhere in Sweden, pizza is always served with a simple side salad of cabbage. The salad is delicious, and is a welcome addition to a pizza meal. Whether you enjoy this salad with pizza, as a side salad with a burger or even a chilli, or as a starter, what is certain is that you will not find a better way to eat raw cabbage : the salad is incredibly quick and easy to prepare and really does taste amazing, so much better than you would expect raw cabbage dressed with a few simple ingredients to taste ! Swedish Cabbage Salad is traditionally made with white cabbage and a little red bell pepper, but in this recipe I use red cabbage for that extra boost of colour and nutrition, and chilli flakes.

  • Wash your cabbage, discard any damaged outer leaves, halve it, then quarter it.
  • Ideally using a mandoline, slice the cabbage as thin as you possibly can into a medium to large bowl. Add the olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and chilli flakes if using.
  • Mix long enough to ensure that every cabbage strand is coated in dressing and serve right away or put in the fridge to allow the cabbage to soften further.
  • Enjoy as a starter or as side dish as one of your 5 a day !
