We had a glut of cabbage from our garden, so I tripled the recipe and stocked the freezer. This was very easy to make. The taste was great, can't wait to see how it is after the flavors meld even more. The mustard seed gives it a nice tang. Thanks for the recipe Darryn!
What is so wonderful about this recipe is that not only is it tasty but it is so handy. Store it in your freezer in portion size containers and you always have a salad ready to have with your meal. The difficult part is to remember to take it out of the freezer an hour before dinner - Thanks for a great recipe!
