Purple Cabbage Salad & Garnishing it with Halloween theme

Cabbage is with a lot of health benefits. It has the ability of lowering cholesterol & also preventing cancer. Purple cabbage is another variety & the colour of purple indicates concentration of anthocyanin polyphenols which is beneficiary in many ways to human body.

Anyway I have a practice of making salads, most of our meal includes a salad.Before preparing this,I couldn’t find a recipe for a salad with purple cabbage as I was in rush, But I just tried my own Sri Lankan way of preparing a salad.

Here is my recipe for 2 servings.


About ¼ of a medium size purple cabbage
1 onion sliced
1 green chilli/1 red chilli or green & red bell pepper
1 tbspn  lime  juice
½ tsp sugar
1 tsp vegetable/olive oil
Pepper to taste
Salt to taste
1 tbspn Rice wine (optional)


Wash & clean the cabbage.
Slice it.
Slice onion & chilli
Prepare the dressing by mixing lime juice, sugar, salt, rice wine, olive oil & pepper
In a bowl, mix sliced cabbage, onion & chilli together.
Then add the dressing & mix well.
Keep in the refrigerator about 1 hr.
It is ready to serve.

When it comes to serving, I wanted to decorate it. Usually I like to garnish salads.
With its purple appearance, I just thought of garnishing with the theme Halloween.
 Oh anyway I didn’t spend much time for garnishing.

I just used a half of a boiled carrot, a slice of tomato, round slices from green chili & a lettuce leaf.
This is my try of making a funny face with big eye balls on my salad plate.
