Jamaican Cabbage Salad

Acually the title is misleading. We don't really call it "cabbage salad." sometimes we just call it salad. Although "salad" can mean only tomato slices with some oil and vinegar (little black pepper).

This is a very simple dish for those in a hurry.


  • 1 Green cabbage
  • 4 medium Carrot
  • 6 Stalks Celery
  • 1 Cucumber
  • ½ Cup Sugar
  • ½ Cup Vinegar
  • ½ Cup Oil
  • 1 Cup boiling water


  1. Slice cabbage into thin strips
  2. Slice carrot into thin slices
  3. Slice celery in to thin strips crossway
  4. Slice cucumber into thin strips
  5. Place all ingredients in to a container
  6. Pour the boiling water in the container
  7. Cover the container for 20 minutes
  8. Drain the liquid
  9. Serve at room temperature

hi, I've been looking for a authentic jamaican cabbage recipe and this looks fantastic!

However I would like to know what do you do with the "1/2 cup oil" included in this recipe?

Thank You!
