Red Cabbage Persimmon Salad with Serrano Ham

© 2019 | | © 2019 |

This vibrant delicious winter salad combines the crisp crunch of red cabbage and toasted pumpkin seeds with the sweetness of seasonal persimmon. The salty, rich, air-cured spanish ham gives a touch of class to this simple salad. You can replace it with prosciutto.

  • 300 g Red cabbage, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp Sea salt
  • 2 Ripe but firm persimmon, peeled and diced
  • 1 tbsp Fresh herbs, chopped (thyme, rosemary or parsley)
  • 1 tbsp Pumpkin seeds, toasted
  • 100 g Thinly sliced serrano ham
  • 3 tbsp Walnut oil
  • 2 tbsp White balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Sambal oelek
  • Freshly milled black pepper
  • 1 tbsp Date syrup
  1. Trim cabbage, discard the thick stems and finely shred. Place into a large bowl. Add in sea salt and massage the cabbage until soft and wilted, about 3 minutes. Leave it aside for an hour.Peel and dice the persimmon.
  2. Place all the ingredients for the dressing in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Whisk until combined.
  3. Rinse and drain the cabbage. Place them in a large bowl. Add in diced persimmon and drizzle in the dressing. Toss to combine. Cover and chill for 2 hours so that the flavours develop.
  4. Place the salad on a serving platter, arrange the serrano ham aside and top with a sprinkling of fresh herb and some pumpkin seeds. | © 2019 | | © 2019 |

I also had persimmon in my salad grain bowls and love the natural sweetness persimmon adds to the salad. I love the vibrant red and orange in your salad, and that savory serrano ham complements it perfectly.
