Red Cabbage Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Betty Lovestoeat

My sister served this side dish at a family function and it has been a favorite at gatherings ever since. It's a red cabbage slaw-type salad with the tang of blue cheese and crunch of almonds combined with a red wine vinaigrette, perfect for parties or just dinner at home.

Love this salad! It is a great alternative to the usual green salad. DH and I ate almost the whole thing! I used a 10 oz package of shredded red cabbage. I only had 2/3 C of sliced almonds but it was plenty. I used shredded sharp cheddar since we don't like blue cheese and I could have added more of the cheddar. The only negative was the bottom of the salad was a bit soupy with all the extra dressing. I did use Splenda and canola oil. This was made for PAC April 2009.
