Spicy Cabbage Salad
Did you just make my Runza’s and now have an obnoxious abundance of cabbage that you don’t know what to do with? No? Hmm-maybe that’s just me…but it doesn’t matter…you can still make this salad, even if you have to go out and buy cabbage.
It’s extremely simple and the results are a creative and new flavorful way to enjoy cabbage. It’s a nice remix on the traditional taco salad or cabbage slaw.
Did you know that cabbage contains fiber and helps lower cholesterol? Also-it is full of sinigrin (a cancer fighting chemical! …who doesn’t want more of those?! ) Salsa can help speed your metabolism and both tomatoes and peppers are chalk full of antioxidants!
-1 head of cabbage
-1 jar salsa
-2 peppers (if you use two different colors it makes it all the more fun!)
-any additional ‘taco’ like toppings; i.e. beans,
Warning! This salad makes a LARGE amount-like enough to feed a hungry group of BBQ go-ers in the middle of June after a long day in the fields! So…if you are enjoying alone feel free to size it down 🙂
1. Chop all ingredients (except salsa because, well…it doesn’t need chopped!)
2. Mix with salsa and let sit 2 hours at least! …this helps bring out all the flavors
…alright so I don’t exactly have the nutritional stats-but don’t get upset! I have a very good reason! It will all depend on how big your head of cabbage is, what your salsa is made out of and how much you eat! Please forgive me 🙂
