Cooked Cabbage Salad

        The stir-fry cabbage salad is a crunchy, tasty, and healthy dish! Really it, not so much stir-fry just saute to make soften the cabbage, people usually make this salad, if someone in the family doesn’t like strong raw cabbage taste. Originally we make it with sunflower oil without a light taste of sunflower. I live in the USA and I most the time make my salad with olive oil with a light taste, so in the recipe is olive oil.

       Very easy to make this cabbage salad and just a few ingredients. A good starter for a dinner or great as a side dish salad for ribs or pork chops. This salad recipe is made from slightly cooked cabbage and has very mild cabbage taste. If you would like a mild taste of cabbage, it was you looking for! So simple, healthy, and tasty. Good next day too, if you have left something for the next day.

Give it a try, the salad is very delicious!

3. Add carrot and grounded coriander.

*I like to freshly crushed coriander. I use small marble mortar. Works very well for a small amount of spices.
