crunchy cabbage salad-

This salad is definitely a keeper and a crowd pleaser at parties. Green cabbage along with red cabbage and carrots are so colorful and so good with radishes. My favorite part of the salad will have to be the added crunchiness from the sunflower seeds and almond slices. Makes the cabbage salad so unique and delicious.

How to finely shred vegetables for salad-

  • A mandoline slicer is best to use for cutting the cabbage. The cabbage pieces will be the same size and it’s much quicker to cut.
  • I use a julienne slicer for the carrots. They look so pretty when sliced and all of the pieces are the same in size.

Can I prepare Red Cabbage Salad in advance?

This is a great salad to prepare in advance. Prepare everything the night before and keep it covered and refrigerated. Then, before serving, add the dressing and self. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
