Eatwell Farmhouse Kitchen

I made this as part of the boxed lunch we served at this year's Strawberry Days on the Farm.  Everyone really loved it! It’s crisp and refreshing, and frankly the easiest slaw ever!

1 head of Cabbage, grated or sliced really thin

1/2 bunch of Mint, finely chopped

1 clove of Garlic, finely chopped

1/4 cup Olive Oil

1/4 cup Lemon Juice

Salt and Pepper to taste

Put cabbage into a large bowl.  In a blender or mini-chopper put the olive oil, lemon juice, mint, pepper and salt and blend until the mint is fairly small.  Pour over the cabbage, and mix well with your hands.  Taste for seasoning and adjust if needed.  You can add a tiny bit of finely chopped garlic and or onion, but it isn't necessary.  This slaw is really refreshing and great the day you make it. Beyond a day, the cabbage softens and produces loads of juice, still fine for eating, just not as crisp.
