Kebab Shop Salad Dressing

Have you ever indulged in a nice kebab at the weekend with the greasy meat filled with flavour and then the crisp crunchy refreshing cabbage salad cutting through the fat so you can take an ever bigger bite next time.  A little unhealty but so very mouth dribbling satisfaction.

When I succumb to the takeaway from the kebab shop I now go for the grilled meats of lamb and chicken rather from the rotisserie as its packed with fat, but that was until I discovered how easy and cheap it is to make your own dressing at home for the Kebab Shop Salad Dressing . Even better it only takes a few minutes to make and then some resting time for it to work its magic on the cabbage and anything else you wish to add to your salad.

An Easy Template for Citrus Vinaigrette, 5 Ways | Kitchn

Here’s the thing about making your own vinaigrette — it really couldn’t be any easier. It’s not an exact science, and it doesn’t require precise measurements. Instead, it comes together with a simple formula that offers plenty of leeway: roughly one part acid to three parts oil. But that ratio isn’t set in stone; use more or less acid, like citrus or vinegar, to suit your taste.

What Else Can You Serve Your Kebab Salad With

what to eat with your kebab salad

I like to use my kebab salad on my burgers. The crunchy fresh taste cuts through all the meat giving it a real contrast of texture. It is great served with any leftover meats, especially beef. When making my burgers for the kebab salad I use the Aldi Brioche Burger buns. Toasted of course as it keeps all the juices from making it to soggy to eat. I have recently been buying there frozen burgers as well. Very meaty a slight pepper taste but for the price they are fantastic. Especially when you have some caramelised shallots to go with it.

Other Great Recipes With Red Cabbage and White Cabbage

The easiest and classic recipe you can make with cabbage is of course coleslaw. The salads favourite accompaniment. Chopped and shredded cabbage all tossed into a bowl then mixed with your favourite sauce. I have had a few incarnations of slaws but they didn’t always go to plan. They always seemed a little watery after half a day in the fridge. Most coleslaw calls for a squeeze in the sauce and there lies the problem

So how do you make non watery coleslaw. Its very simple, all you need for the perfect coleslaw recipe is your chopped (use a gadget)cabbage red and white. Shredded carrot and onion, then add some seasoning, simple salt and pepper. Next you add equal measures of salad cream and mayonnaise. Yes all shop bought, you stir in the sauces into the cabbage, carrots and onions . Just add enough of the sauces so it coats all the cabbage and thats it

The salad cream and mayonnaise have the perfect ratio of acid in the sauce to help tenderise the raw cabbage and onions in the coleslaw. After all they are mass manufactured so they are bound to be right. Want to add a little more flavour then add a pinch of smoked paprika.
