I never used cabbage in this way but my husband and I loved it. The kids weren't as much in love with it. They picked out the tomatoes and cucumbers but left the cabbage. I changed it slightly by not using carrots or green pepper (I thought I had one but didn't) and adding sliced sweet onions. I also peeled and seeded my cucumber as it wasn't the English type. With cabbage being cheaper than lettuce, and everything else growing in my garden, I'll make this again for DH and I. Great for a quick lunch too and since cabbage is so sturdy it saved well. I served this along side chicken bbq sandwiches.

I fixed it for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day and it was a big success! I wouldve never thought of using cabbage instead of lettuce for a salad. We loved it!

It’s been said already but I will say it again, it was a nice change from the usual salad. I served this was jerk chicken. Thanks for sharing.

Very good. It was a nice change to the typical tossed salad. I served it with jerk fish, chips and black bean dip.

This was really good... and it makes such a pretty presentation ! I used grayberts recipe Thousand Island Dressing for the Thousand Island Dressing and garden variety cucumbers instead of English. I will make this again. Thanks Nat !

I loved this, I have missed salads so much and this is one way besides a greek salad that I can eat my veggies. My husband doesnt like thousand island dressing so he used italian and thought it was really good, cabbage makes a difference in taste. I love thousand island so I ate my as the recipe calls. Thank you so much for another alternative salad for me.

This was a good side salad with a nice presentation. I was making jerked pork on the grill and this was a nice side addition. I used a local dressing called Johnny's Jamaica Mistake which is similar to a cross between French and Thousand Island and also threw on some avocados. Thanks for a nice easy side salad.

The Other Half says five. I tweaked it first because neither of us can eat raw cukes. Added onion along with the green pepper and added more tomato than called for. Used Fat Free Ranch dressing without a problem. Also used Sun Dried Tomato dressing on it too another time. Works well with the adaptions. Didn't include the carrot the second time because I was not about to trot out and see if any were ready. Chopping what I had was enough. All veggies were fresh either from our garden or the local grower.
