really enjoyed the recipe, it is a feast for your mouth and your eyes, it is colorful and the red and yellow peppers gave it a sweet taste, but i substituted the green cabbage for romaine lettuce, because i had some in the fridge and because my stomach can't tolerate green cabbage well since it is hard to digest.thanks for posting
