    I made this salad and omitted cooking the cabbage. I also shredded some celery and a large carrot to give it a little more veggie power. Will def make again. Thanks! - 3/31/19

    Red cabbage is great and this is no exception. Red cabbage looks beautiful wilted or crisp in with other salad greens. Love this. - 3/25/10
