If you ever find yourself in a pizzeria anywhere in Sweden, you will likely encounter a side dish of punchy cabbage slaw to go with your order, known as pizzasallad. It is basically a simple slaw with a sharp vinegary dressing that’s totally addictive. Pizza doesn’t really taste the same without it but you can also serve it as a side salad with meat, fish or as part of a picnic. I have added some seeds for extra crunch.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g white cabbage
1 grilled red pepper in oil, sliced
1 small red onion, finely sliced
3 tablespoons cold-pressed rapeseed oil or olive oil
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
pinch chilli flakes
1 teaspoon poppy seeds
1 teaspoon sunflower seeds

Method

  1. Begin by very finely shredding the cabbage, ideally using a slicing attachment in a food processor. Place the shredded cabbage in a large sieve and sprinkle over about 2 teaspoons sea salt. Leave for 20–30 minutes, then drain away any liquid and shake off any excess salt.
  2. Place the cabbage in a large bowl and add the red pepper and onion. Whisk the oil and vinegar together with the oregano, chilli flakes and plenty of black pepper. Pour the dressing over the salad and add the seeds, tossing to distribute. Serve as a slaw or with pizza.
