I was selfish when I tagged this recipe as I love sweet & sour red cabbage, but DH does not care for it at all. I admit I was a bit surprised to see it paired w/cheese as that would not occur to me. I used my homemade pickled cabbage & could not find a suitable smoked cheese, so I used Camenbert & just placed it atop the salad mixture so it would not take on the red hue of the cabbage. This salad combines several distinctive flavors, but does it very well - a truly unique & tasty new salad favorite for me! Pls see my rating system & thx for sharing this recipe w/us, Ev. Edited to Add: A 2nd helping got me thinking about it & a 3rd convinced me to add a well-deserved 5th star! Yum!
