This recipe is a variation of one from my husband’s family. The first time I heard of “cabbage salsa”, I must admit that I thought it sounded a little strange. But I was blown away when I tried it! This is fabulous with chips, or as a condiment for tacos, etc. It's the best!

We had half a head of cabbage left from another recipe and were looking for something different to do with it. We used fresh ingredients from the farmer's market, with exception of the wine vinegar. We both felt that this was ok, but probably not something we will be making again.
