LOVE this topic. Cabbage is one of my favorite foods, but I don't make it enough.
I had a roommate from Poland and she used cabbage the we I use lettuce, so, salads for me are a switch up between different lettuces or shredded/chopped cabbage. She also simmered it in Italian salad dressing until it was soft but still had a bit of bite. She would drain it, so, the flavor was there but not a ton of empty calroies or anything.
I make slaw that is a vinegar base, not mayo, with lime juice and jalapenos. Zippy and a kick of spice. You can find the recipe on from Cooking Light.
I boil it and then eat it with salt, pepper, little grated parmesean cheese.
Love your recipe ideas!!!
Can I add that I love, love, love brussel sprouts? Roasted with a bit of bacon and apples and pears... oh my gosh. Or just roasted by themselves. A bit of olive oil, salt, pepper... heaven on a plate. My husband swore he hated them, and now, this is a holiday staple. We've convinced our families, too!!! I make them pretty often. YUM! And they are cheap, cheap, cheap at our famrer's market, too.
