Love vinigar so this was a great recipe, boyfriend only gave it 3 stars because he wasnt a fan of the cabbage, though he still cleaned his plate.

While mine didn't look quite as pretty as the picture, it tasted GREAT. Even better than I expected. The cabbage slaw and warm mushroom vinaigrette are out-of-this-world good. That part of this recipe would be good all on its own. I did end up with way too much of it and next time will reduce the liquids in the vinaigrette in half. This is surprisingly easy to make and impressive.
