This is perfect along side my Slow Cooker Pernil Recipe (this is on regular rotation in my house) or my Picadillo recipe.

Everyone loves this, including my youngest daughter. When she was a toddler I left out the red onion. It’s also low-carb, vegetarian, gluten-free and whole30 compliant.

  1. This is such a light and fresh salad.   I like to add some shredded carrot.

  2. I made this with dinner, last night and it was really good

  3. YUM! Perfect for our fish tacos tonight! I agree w/ another comment and LOVE vinegar so added more- I did the 5 tsp of cider, than added about the same of red wine. Since we were having fish tacos, I also added cilantro. We have plenty of leftovers that will serve as a side for our turkey sandwiches this week.

  4. Made this for dinner tonight with your BREADED PORK CUTLETS and it was a perfect match. I’m sure white rice and your PR Beans would make a perfect meal! 

  5. What is the best way to measure 5 cups of shredded cabbage?  I weighed it, but seems like a lot of cabbage in relation to the onion and pepper.

  6. I made this recipe, substituting a kale/cabbage slaw mix for just cabbage and it was delicious! Very light and crisp tasting and better the second day once the flavors had a chance to sit.
