Red Cabbage-Orange Salad

With temperatures soaring, I am looking to eat more salads and light meals. I love cabbage because it’s so low on calories and it’s very rich in Vitamin C. Both red and yellow cabbage are available almost all year round and you can make so many great recipes with them.

This salad is so vibrant and tempting. It can easily be the showstopper for an informal gathering. It’s also very tasty – the crispness of the cabbage combines with the fruity flavours of the orange so beautifully. It can also be refrigerated for a few days.


The oranges have to be carefully sectioned using a sharp knife. You can also use any type of cottage cheese or herbs of your choice.

This recipe is from American Cooking.



PREP: 20 minutes SERVES: 4-6


1 small red cabbage, shredded

3 medium oranges

¼ cup fresh coriander, chopped

1 small green pepper, slivered

¾ cup paneer, cubed

¼ cup orange juice

Salt to taste

Grated orange rind


Peel and section two oranges. Extract the juice from the remaining oranges. Combine all the ingredients together and toss lightly. Serve on a bed of lettuce. Garnish with additional green pepper slivers and orange rind, if desired.

A Hint Of Spice

Hi. I am Padma and I am passionate about delicious food. Food is amazing in that it can take you to another place and time in your life just by the taste, smell and touch. Even a photograph evokes memories that lie dormant within us. I still remember a coconut candy that I used to eat as a child. Even though it’s not available now, I clearly remember the taste. It takes me back to my childhood pleasures as nothing else can. Being Indian, my palate is so used to spices. I started experimenting by mixing spices with European and other Western cuisines. The result is truly delicious. I love trying out different spices with different recipes. Sometimes I use the powder and sometimes I grind the spices with other herbs, onions, etc in the blender. The result is quite spectacular – a lovely fusion of the East and West. I hope you like my recipes and are inspired enough to try out a few of them. I would love to hear back from you.
