StoryThe most popular way to prepare cabbage is raw in a slaw. This quick and colorful version is tops on my charts for a refreshing side anytime that fresh red or green cabbage is available—which is most of the year. For eco-flair, serve it in bowls made from the remaining cabbage halves. Use extra cabbage in sandwiches, too.
