Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill to medium.

  • Cut each cabbage quarter into 3 wedges, trying to keep an equal portion of the core attached to each wedge to hold it together on the grill. Brush the cabbage wedges and carrot with 1 1/2 tablespoons oil.

  • Grill the vegetables, turning occasionally, until lightly charred and starting to soften, 10 to 15 minutes. Grill lemon, cut-side down, until grill marks form, about 4 minutes.

  • Juice the lemon halves into a large bowl. Whisk in the remaining 2 1/2 tablespoons oil, shallot, honey, salt and pepper. Stir in herbs.

  • Chop the vegetables into 1/2-inch pieces. Add to the bowl and toss with the dressing.
