St. Patrick’s Day is Friday and the Sunday Supper crew has over 35 healthy recipes from breakfast to dessert to make you feel less guilty about all of that Guinness and Bailey’s you’re likely to indulge in over the weekend. Thanks Christie from A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures for hosting this event.
I tried something completely new to share today and am happy to say that my “bravery” paid off with a side dish that we’d be (and have been) happy to repeat.
Grilled and wilted greens isn’t exactly a new phenomenon but it’s one that’s always kinda made me cringe. Lettuce is supposed to be crisp and refreshing. How can grilling it be a good idea and why is it so popular?
As for cabbage – that’s a green that can be served warm and often is, but I’ve never really cared for it hot. That’s the only reason I didn’t like my mom’s cabbage rolls growing up (though I should revisit them now that I’m a food blogging adult).
Yet here I am, sharing a recipe for grilled cabbage. And it’s fantastic! It’s warmed through, charred to a level of near sweetness, and maintains texture. Topped with a fresh dressing makes it nearly addicting. This side dish is quite easy to do in 10 minutes and can be done indoors on a grill pan. But if you’re out grilling already, just throw that cabbage on the grill while you’re at it!
Grilled Cabbage with Spicy Lime Dressing
- 1 head of cabbage
- canola oil, for brushing
- 1/4 C lime juice
- 1/4 C extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 C fresh cilantro
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/4 tsp sugar
- lime wedges
- Clean the outer leaves from the cabbage. Cut into 8 wedges, leaving the core intact for easy handling.
- Brush wedges with oil.
- Grill cabbage 4-5 minutes on each side, until charred and warmed through.
- Make the dressing: Combine lime juice, olive oil, cilantro, garlic, salt, cayenne, and sugar in a blender and blend until smooth.
- Spoon dressing over the grilled and serve with lime wedges.

I haven’t grilled cabbage before. Love those grill marks and the lime dressing!
Oooh, I have got to make this! Will have to find a sub for cilantro though, it tastes like soap to me. Maybe parsley or thyme?
I’d go with parsley.
I am a cabbage fan but never grilled it. I have to fix that!
I hope you enjoy it!
A quick and easy side dish. I am a cabbage lover, hot or cold.
It’s so quick!
