Served at my grandma's house for every holiday occasion as long as I can remember. You wouldn't know there is cabbage in this unless you saw the ingredient list! Tastes like fruit and whipped cream!

I am a bit biased since Grandma Vi is my great-grandma. This is a dish I always associate with the holidays! I am sure to make this each year, especially now that I have a family of my own!

Made as a test run for our annual halloween party. The kids loved it even with the cabbage. I added in some shredded carrots to make it even more festive for the occasion. We will be using this one.
