Cabbage & Onion Salad

This is one of my favorite and almost always go to salad.  It can be served with just about anything and even kids seem to like it.
The salad will keep well for up to three days in a sealed container in the refrigerator, so you can make it in advance and at the time of serving, give it a good stir and transfer to a serving dish.
I found this recipe in the Spyskaarte Vir Elke Seisoen years ago, adapted it sligtly and haven’t tired of the salad yet. The original recipe calls for Caraway Seeds to be added, but I {for some reason ..??} have never used it.
As I have mentioned before, I never cook according to season, well, I do make soup a little more during Winter than in Summer, but then again, you might find me sharing salads or other light recipes right in the middle of Winter.
In South-Africa, we also have the right weather to braai {BBQ} whenever we like .. it is never too cold to sit outside around a nice fire, with some steaks and lamb chops {and do not forget our Boerewors!} on the grill.


1 Onion, chopped finely
3 cups Cabbage, grated or very finely sliced
1/2 cup Seedless Raisins
3/4 cup Mayonnaise
1 TB Sunflower Oil
1 TB Sugar
1/2 t Salt
1.) Mix the Onion, Cabbage and Raisins in a large bowl.
2.) Combine the Mayonnaise, Oil, Sugar and Salt very well – mix in with the Cabbage.
Chill before serving.

  1. Another dish that sounds perfect for warmer weather :)Our temps have been 90-100+°F (32-37°+ C) … a salad like this would be cool and refreshing!

  2. Linda, this salad looks like something I can get addicted to 🙂 I love cabbage especially in a salad. Pinned and ready to try 🙂
