Directions See How It's Made
- Remove any of the outer discolored or tough leaves from the cabbage.
- Trim the base of the cabbage head so that the cabbage will stand upright then cut about a quarter off the top.
- Mix together well the dressing ingredients. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Using a sharp knife, scoop out the inside of the cabbage leaving about 1/4 inch for the shell. Set aside.
- Shred the remaining cabbage finely. Put the shredded cabbage into a large bowl along with the bell pepper, pineapple, orange segments, green onions, celery and leaves, nuts and beans.
- Carefully fold in the dressing with the cabbage mixture.
