With the summer fast approaching, I have decided to share with you my go-to easy salad recipe. I’m a little bored of lettuce salads, that’s why I love a tangy, crunchy red cabbage slaw. Crunchy salads go with anything and everything and are a great addition to your menu.

Cholent with red cabbage salad? Check. London Broil and red cabbage salad? Check. Roasted salmon with red cabbage salad? You get the picture. That’s why I serve this salad almost every single Shabbos!


The truth is, I first saw a version of this salad at my neighbor’s house. I asked her for the recipe and it included almost one cup of sugar (cloyingly sweet), a ton of oil, and the packet of ramen noodle soup seasoning (some MSG, anybody?) I politely thanked her and quickly came up with my very own dressing.

I like my dressings acidic and light. The problem is, I never measure. I just throw a few ingredients together and hope for the best – and it comes out delicious week after week. Since I decided to actually print this recipe, I knew I had to provide exact measurements.

After measuring precisely, I proudly put it all in a bowl and gave it to hubby. When I asked him how it tasted, he said, “Delicious! But it tastes the same way as you always make it…” And that’s exactly what I wanted to hear. #measure #don’tmeasure #thatisthequestion
