We thought this was a good way to have cabbage as a side dish. It was a little spicy so next time I think I'll try 1 can of Rotel and 1 can of plain diced tomatoes. I also used turkey bacon to reduce the fat a little bit.

I made this for dinner tonight as a side to our sausages. I doubled the garlic, which is a must for our garlic loving family. I also used homemade Rotel with fresh peppers and tomatoes from the garden. It was ok, but not a family favorite. Lots of leftovers and I am hoping they will be more flavorful after melding all night.

Great salad! We like the way it was spicy also. Made with Ranch chicken thighs. Thanks!
