Spicy, Simple Cabbage Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by cooking in cairo...

This is a salad I make with leftover cooked cabbage that I have when I make Egyptian Style Stuffed Cabbage, see my recipe for these. It's so easy, but a great little salad with just the right amount of heat. Enjoy!

Oh my goodness I think all your recipes are the best masha Allah (praise be to God). I have been missing out getting rid of that middle part of the cabbage when making recipe#194768. This is a great salad! DH said he liked it and for cabbage salad that says a lot. I used Hellman's olive oil mayonnaise to be soy free, sea salt, to taste, freshly ground black pepper, to taste, much less cayenne pepper, to taste, sliced purple onion, plus the rest of the ingredients. I will make this again. Made for WELCOME TO EGYPT!
