Recipe of the Week : Salade de chou (cabbage salad)

This is a beautifully simple and refreshing meal - served to me on a silver platter, breakfast-lunch-dinner, in Bafoussam. Apparently, also a very vegetarian dish! Here is how it’s made for one cabbage:

1. Remove outer cabbage leaves and mince inner part
2. Rinse the leaves with boiling water, to flash-cook them a bit
3. Prepare a sauce: mix 8 or more tbsp lemon juice, 6 tbsp oil, 1 or 2 sugar cubes, and some salt
4. Slice onion thin, soak in sauce for a few minutes
5. Pour onions and sauce over cabbage, serve
