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.
