A very simple recipe for a warm cabbage salad from Le Marche, this dish is perfect served alongside the many pork or chicken dishes from this region. The recipe does call for fresh, crisp, spring cabbage as opposed to the coarser, heavier-leaved cabbages such as Savoy or the Tuscan cavolo nero. As with all recipes that rely on very few, basic ingredients, it is important that the flavourings, in this case the red wine vinegar, should be of the best possible quality - in other words, strong and tasty as well as sharp and sour, but not too astringent or acidic; it is worth buying a decent bottle.
