Heart Shaped Cabbage Slaw with Zucchini and Pinenuts

Labels: { , , } | © 2018 |

A simple homemade slaw salad of heart-shaped cabbage, onion, grapes and pine nuts with a white balsamic dressing. Light, and full of crispy texture and fresh flavours.

White Balsamic Dressing
  • 800 g Heartshaped cabbage, shredded
  • 1 Red onion, thinly sliced
  • A handful of grapes, halved
  • A handful of grape tomatoes
  • 1 Zucchini, cut into half moon slices
  • 1-2 tbsp Pine nuts, toasted
  • Fresh parsley leaves, chopped
  • 180 ml Extra virgin olive oil
  • 60 ml White balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Thinly slice the heart-shaped cabbage and red onion. Place in a large bowl with grapes. Cut zucchini lengthwise in half and slice into half moon slices. Arrange the slices in a heart shape on a serving platter. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, for the dressing, combine all the ingredients in a screwtop jar. Season, then seal and shake to combine.
  3. Drizzle half the dressing over the slaw and toss to combine. Place the slaw into the zucchini heart. Sprinkle with toasted pine nuts and chopped parsley. Garnish with grape tomatoes. Serve immediately with remaining dressing. | © 2018 | | © 2018 |

Such a gorgeous presentation, Angie! Everything I love in a salad and everything my hubby does not (cucumbers, slaw, nuts). That means a perfect lunch that I won't have to share! It sounds wonderful!

Cabbage is so good for you, any type, any shape...just saw on the Chopped cooking show last night as the 'heart shape cabbage' featured, and I see it now on your post. Your creation blows theirs away, Angie! Love the actual heart shape, and the cucumber addition, especially the grapes and the sweet and tangy dressing! Yumm

Louise (Cooking with kids) 1/3/18 22:27

This looks beautiful, and I love the sound of that dressing (I'm a big fan of balsamic ��). Thanks for sharing

Look at all that delicious zucchini, I love zucchini its refreshing and does wonders for my skin. I also like this cabbage slaw and the fact that it’s all shaped in a heart.

I have never heard of heartshaped cabbage. I had to look it up, and found something called Wakefield? Nonetheless, what a charming arrangement. And the dressing sounds delicious!

You are so creative! And this cabbage slaw sounds divine! Pinning.

Beautiful!Perfect for a dinner party! And super healthy too!

Eva Taylor 5/3/18 01:16

What is a heart-shaped cabbage? Would it have the same flavour as regular cabbage? I will be making a coleslaw for my Easter dinner with my cousins as they asked me to do do a pulled pork and it goes exceptionally well with coleslaw!

@Eva Taylor
It's also called conehead cabbage. It's not as hard as the round one, so much sweeter and crisper. Here we can get white and purple ones.

Rafeeda AR 5/3/18 08:41
