This Purple Cabbage Salad is truly amazing. Bright flavors, vibrant colors and so filling. It’ll be a hit at your next event.
The Purple Cabbage Salad is so unique in flavors. Typically, I don’t like olives, but they work so well with this salad. They add that extra zest to the flavors, making your tastebuds dance.
The first time I’ve tried this Purple Cabbage Salad is on the New Years Eve. My friend made it that night and I just loved it. It’s not typical for salads to go first at a dinner table, but this was the case.
