As promised; a lighter, fresher, vegetarian option for St. Patty’s Day (or any day really).
I love raw cabbage and I tend to think this simple, nourishing veggie is often overlooked. Its a no-frills kind of veggie that is both inexpensive and super versatile, so stop overlooking this beautiful, purple gem.
When I was growing up, sliced red cabbage was a staple in our weeknight green salad but these days I love to make it the star of the show.
This fresh, hearty, crunchy salad can hold it’s own as a nice light meal and also pairs perfectly along side whatever else is being served (during the summer, I make it along side of these Soy Chicken Thighs).
If corned beef and cabbage is not your thing on St. Patty’s Day, you absolutely should give this a try.
