Cabbage Salad

"This crisp, fresh-tasting slaw keeps in the fridge for several days," notes Deborah Moore-Dedenbach from Big Bay, Michigan. It's a bargain, too, at 13 cents a serving. "We live about an hour from the nearest major city, so shopping trips can be few and far between. I often buy cabbage rather than lettuce for salads, because it stores longer," Deborah says.

    This is very good. My mom used to make something very similar and I’ve looked for years to find this recipe. Instead of tarragon, mom include celery seed. She also frequently diced green onions or fresh peppers into it. It can be changed according to taste.

    I needed to use up some purple cabbage and decided to use this recipe even though it was for regular cabbage. It was a real hit with my family!

    Is simple, easy and my boyfriend loves it.... I make this at least once a month.... Fresh crisp, light and healthy.... Have made it at least 20 times and am making it again today... Only difference is I usually use apple cider vinegar because that is what I have and I omit the sugar.

    So easy. It's a good meat accompaniment, best served in small tangy portions.

    What a lovely change! My husband and I both love this. I used Marjoram since I didn't have any Tarragon on hand. I will definitely keep this recipe handy.

    Hey Deb. Your recipe sounds/looks great! I'm about one hour EAST of you so I really know what it means to not live near the city.Sandy
