Moldovan Style Radish Coleslaw

Average Rating:

Moldovans call this recipe Cabbage Salad. It’s basically similar with the popular coleslaw, but it also uses some different ingredients, which provide a unique flavor. It is a savory, refreshing summer salad, a Moldovan favorite, especially when grilling out. It tastes as good during the other seasons too! 🙂


1/2 small cabbage, or about 8 cups shredded cabbage
12 radishes, or so
1/2 large cucumber
1/2 medium onion
1/2 tablespoon salt
1 and 1/2 tablespoon vinegar
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup diced dill weed



Using a knife, thinly shred the cabbage as pictured below.


Cut the radishes, onion and cucumber into thin slices.


Add the salt to the shredded cabbage and lightly rub it together using your hand.


Add the sliced radishes, cucumber and onion.


At the end, add vinegar, oil and diced dill weed. Mix everything together. Serve immediately.


Serving Suggestions: You can serve with barbecue/other grilled meats, or actually with anything, really. It’s a delicious, healthy salad, so you can have it anytime!
