Cabbage really is so versatile! You can wrap chicken stir fries up in cabbage along with anything else! It's super durable too! :)

Cabbage is also a lot cheaper than lettuce. I love cabbage soup.

I can't stand iceberg, and haven't bought it in years. It HAS no nutritional value! It's just solid water, basically. Good for keeping you hydrated, and little else. ;)

My favorite lettuce is red leaf. SO yummy!

I saw a weightloss blog of a woman who would use cabbage instead of lettuce for salads. She would shred green and red cabbage with carrots ect at the beginning of the week and keep it in a big bin in her fridge. I have tried that and it worked well. I like how it lasts a long time in the fridge and red cabbage has a high nutritional value. Not to mention cabbage is cheap. I do that every once and a while.
I saw another blog where a lady made pad Thai and used cabbage as noodles.

I eat a lot of cooked cabbage, usually white, never tried the green one raw before.

I do make "Jungle Slaw" (its from an old recipe book I find it very funny) which is very finely shredded white cabbage, red apple, carrot, with a vinegar and mustard dressing, with chickpeas and peanuts tossed through it.

Really good in the summer, the vinegar softens the cabbage nicely.

I love cabbage, too. Sauteed or steamed.

And of course it is in every course of our Polish dinner on Christmas Eve. Cabbage soup, stuffed cabbage, pierogi with cabbage, and I'm sure Grandma's desserts are somehow stuffed with cabbage, too. ;)

Definitely a good thought. I have not used iceberg - period - for years for that very reason. Next to no nutrient value. Other lettuce greens are what I use. I even had a Canadian friend once tell me that they do not even call a bowl of iceberg a salad. It has to be other greens to be a salad......

Whatever works, right? And when I ate Mexican food, I always used romaine. emoticon

That sounds good and not that odd at all. Sounds like a healthy cole slaw type dressing. Maybe you should try adding celery or poppy seeds.

Good idea! It's got much more nutrition in it than iceberg, to be sure.

I like to take a little fresh grated lemon peel with lemon juice, a little powdered milk, and some Splenda, mix that up, and pour it over shredded green cabbage. Sounds odd, but it's refreshing - and addictive! Good for you, too.

I mistakenly bought half a head of green cabbage instead of iceberg lettuce. We were having burritos and tacos. Guess what? We couldn't really tell the difference in this instance. And cabbage has so much more nutrition than iceberg. What a happy accident.
