Grilled Cabbage Wedge Salad

This salad is a remix on a few favorite things: cabbage, which is most commonly used in slaws, and wedge salads, almost always made with chilled iceberg lettuce. We’re switching things up by grilling big hunks of cabbage to bring out their natural sweetness. Then, we add in the salty and savory elements: nutty tahini and a handful of fresh herbs. This one may very well become a new classic.

One reply on “Grilled Cabbage Wedge Salad”

I live alone, but had half a purple cabbage that needed to be used, so-o-o:
I grilled the wedges with olive oil, salt and pepper. The I sprinkled lemon juice and zest of one lemon over, also used a garlic/herb mix I often cook with and finally, lightly sprinkle of honey. A delicious sweet/sour result!! Loved it!! Thank you for the recipe, even though I had to change it some.
