Cabbage salsa

We know what you’re thinking. Cabbage? Salsa? Yeah, but it works. The crunch and the color go perfectly with more traditional salsa ingredients to make for a side that’s perfect with your favorite Mexican dishes.

Note: Taste test throughout to keep the sour and salty in balance.  This is exceptional the second day or after several hours of marinating in the refrigerator.

No real set in stone measuring here.  Make for 2 or 10.
