I love cabbage salads, and this is no exception! I did have to modify to fit my current diet, but will make again in a few weeks to include the oil. I subbed apple cider vinegar for the white wine vinegar, and stevia for the sugar, omiting the oil (dietary restrictions). Absolutely wonderful!! Thank you for posting a delightful recipe. Made for ZWT6 - Germany/Benelux.
