- Crumble the bacon and stir into the cabbage mixture. Serve warm.
I took your suggestion and served it with "Ginger Beer Battered Fish". It was sweet and sour at the same time. I didn't have purple cabbage, so it was not as colorful as it should have been. But when your neighbor gives you cabbage from his garden, you don't pass up. I also didn't have tomatoes with green chilis, so I used diced tomatoes and add some green chilis to it. Will make again.

I really liked this along with pork chops tonight for dinner. A little sweet and a little sour, the ingedients came together well. I used a regular head of cabbage and it wasn't as colorful as the purple, but it still tasted good! Thanks for sharing Loof! Linda
