1 head green cabbage, quartered, cored, and shredded or thinly sliced
2-3 scallions, chopped
Juice of 1 or 2 limes, more or less (lemon is just as good; vinegar can be substituted if you don’t have citrus on hand)
Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil or, for a more neutral oil, use avocado oil
1 handful cilantro, chopped
optional: a hot pepper or two, seeded, veined and finely chopped
Combine the cabbage, scallions, cilantro and hot pepper (if using) in a large bowl. Toss with the lime juice and oil and season to taste.
