Vitamin Cabbage Vegetable Salad
This colorful, crunchy salad is perfect any time of year and complements just about any dinner. There is such a variety of vegetables that each bring their own distinct flavor. You only need to season it very simply and toss it with some sunflower oil and vinegar and it still tastes incredibly complex. The texture is phenomenally crisp and fresh. We all need more healthy dishes in our lives, and this is packed full of vitamins.

You’re welcome, Natasha. I love sharing recipes that our family enjoys with others. Good food should be shared, in my opinion. Thanks so much for taking the time to write. Hope you guys liked the salad and the chicken kebabs.
God bless you too!
Just a question: what do you use to get your veggies so wonderfully julienned? It looks beautiful as well as being healthy.
I actually cut it by hand. I’ve had so much practice over the years and I actually enjoy chopping. It’s so peaceful, lol. You can also use a mandolin.
I love cabbage, and this looks so colorful, very pretty!
Thanks so much! I love all the beautiful colors in here too.
is there celery in it?
Yes, there is celery in this salad, one mom.
Do you shred the cabbage by hand? What is your technique ?
Yes, you can shred the cabbage by hand, with a knife, or you can use a mandolin, Anita. Here’s the mandolin that I like, it’s inexpensive and works great. I personally prefer using a knife, though.
This recipe has become a staple in our house. I panicked last week not finding cabbage in the grocery store because of panic buying due to the Corona virus. Third store had lots of cabbage! Thanks for the recipe.
I’m so glad you enjoyed the salad, Susan. The great thing about this salad is that you can use many different varieties of vegetables in addition to the cabbage, depending on what you have available. Thank you for taking the time to write.
Looks delicious! Can you make it ahead and would it stay crunchy?
Yes, this salad does really well made in advance.
