Here’s a delicious cabbage salad that works either as a sophisticated, refreshing side dish or works as a meal. It’s also a great way to use up any leftover cooked chicken but it would also be wonderful served with shrimp.

Here’s a delicious recipe for Thai Cabbage Salad With Spicy Ginger Dressing from the folks at The Nourishing Gourmet. This is one beautiful looking salad; one that will please your eye at least as much as your palate.
