This simple red cabbage slaw is a great side dish for any meal! It’s easy to make, tasty, and healthy!
I’m so happy it’s cole slaw season! Why? Because I love raw cabbage but strongly dislike cooked cabbage. Is that odd?
It is kind of odd, especially since I’m part Polish, and my mom makes amazing stuffed cabbage (that’s what I hear, I just eat the filling, no can do on the cooked cabbage outside). I just feel like cooked cabbage smells weird. And kind of looks weird. Anyway…
That’s not the case with raw cabbage. Especially red cabbage, which is so pretty in a salad. This is a really easy slaw to throw together, especially if you still need a last minute side dish for Easter Sunday. If you don’t like red cabbage, you can use regular cabbage, we’ve made it that way before, I just think that the red cabbage is nicer to look at.
When I made this simple red cabbage slaw a couple of weeks ago, I found out that even the tiniest seed is a deal breaker for my six year old. I put celery seeds in this version, and even though he LOVES cabbage, and always eats it right up, he saw the super tiny seeds in there and said, “I see seeds. Are those seeds? Get them out.” Um, it isn’t possible to pick out celery seeds, so that meant making up a separate small bowl of slaw without seeds. :)
