Israeli Cabbage Salad

Red Cabbage Israeli Slaw

Shredded, bagged cabbage makes preparation of this delicious salad effortless.

This was the first Israeli dish I made from scratch. The recipe is from Chanie, my Israeli sister-in-law. She's famous for her elaborate salad course. It's so super easy that I make it all the time as a pretty and nourishing complement to any meal. My sister-in-law slices her own cabbage and that's how she instructed me to make the salad. But you know me. I found that the shredded, bagged cabbage is just as good. Trust me on this.
