    I don't like cabbage, but they say you should keep trying different foods during your life because your taste changes.

    Question I had salad that was made with shredded cabbage apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, raisins and ramen noodles. It was so good!

    Anyone ever have this wondering if I am missing something?

    The vinegar and sugar make it sound like, sort of, cole slaw. Raisins for more sweetness, ramen for crunch.

    I haven't had any in a long time but I do like corned beef and cabbage.

    sounds like a westernised wombok salad but using western cabbage and dressing yummo!

    I fucking love coleslaw, give me a mandolin and I will go to town on radiccio, cabbage and carott and make me some slaw.

    Eating simple food is always better so your stomach can handle digest easily then convert the maximum benefit of it into your body. for me I eat red cabbage this way: I shred it then add lemon,sea salt + lil vinegar.

    leave it in the fridge for couple of minutes and then .... enjoy the taste icon_biggrin.gif

    Try Napa cabbage shredded, finely chopped jicama, salt, a touch of red pepper flakes, and lemon or rice wine vinegar. Prepare, leave out for the salt to do its work. Eat. Very healthy, no sugar, no oil, no carbs. Great crunch. Lasts for days.

    ^^^YES to Napa Cabbage. Even those who don't like cabbage tend to like its' mild flavor and distinctive crunch.

    MikemikeMike, try it in your recipe.

    As for leaving out sugars and oil, it's worth trying---or simply trying to use less.

    But if a little sugar&oil is the only thing that makes a healthy food like cabbage palatable to you.....Add it.

    You guys are so right. Simple fresh flavors make a world of difference. I came across one recipe that combined Red and Green Cabbage Carrots, Sunflower Seeds and the dressing was honey, Sesame Oil, White Vinegar. May have had a few other ingredients. Let it sit in the fridge for a bit, then serve. It was awesome and keeps well. The oil isn't so bad for you and brings a great flavor. Add Flax Seeds for a health boost, shred some beets,....have fun!!

    You're missing the spring onions and sunflower seeds.

    undo the cabbage leaves, add a filling and use this as a wrap that you would steam.

    Try making stuffed cabbage in a Bundt cake pan for a change. The steamed leaves fit perfectly into the fluted sides, stuff the resulting ring w/ your favorite rice-meat-veggie blend, cover with a layer of sauerkraut a/o sliced potatoes, and pour the sauce over all and bake, covered until the last 30" or so. Or try some haluski; google the recipe and then take off from there. With St. Pat's approaching, cabbage is on sale now, so stock up!
