Cabbage Salad perfect for the warm summer months!
We went to a party this weekend; when we received the invitation we were asked to bring a side dish. To be honest I don’t have a lot of side dish recipes in my repertoire. When I serve a side dish for my family I would consider a simple vegetable or potatoes… I thought that I needed something a little more exciting than that.
I knew that I wanted something with cabbage, but no coleslaw, I wanted something different. It couldn’t include mayonnaise because I didn’t want anyone to get sick eating my food… food poisoning because the mayonnaise had gone bad.
I love the Oriental cabbage salads, but I don’t always like the Ramen noodles in these salads. After looking around I found one that was almost exactly what I was looking for. The cabbage salad I found had the cabbage, chicken, and almond plus a few more ingredients that sound great, plus no Ramen noodles.
When we got to the party there were tons of salads lined up on the counter, so I was a little worried that I would go home with all of my salad intact. When I went to pick up my bowl before going home I was surprised to see that about 3/4 of the salad had disappeared. I believe that is a good sign that people liked it.
This is one recipe that I will be adding to my repertoire!
