This is an excellent salad I whipped up one evening for dinner.  My husband has been out of town, so salads are a regular thing if I’m eating solo.  But this was so good, I’m going to double it for both of us next time! If your kids are on board with Asian flavors, they may like this one too!  You could also quickly stir fry the cabbage to make it a warm salad!
