I have enjoyed making this warm cabbage salad lately.

Cabbage has certainly had a bad rap in the past, which is a shame because there are so many ways to make it flavorful and delicious! It’s not stinky or bland if you give it just a little bit of seasoning.

Did I mention that cabbage is one of the most affordable veggies? Yes, it’s true! 

You can stretch main dishes further with the addition of this inexpensive vegetable and create amazing side dishes with a simple head of cabbage.

Cabbage can be eaten both in cold-shredded salads like coleslaw and warm toasty ones like this recipe.  I tend to make this warm salad in the cooler months when I am craving fresh ingredients but you do you boo. 😉

Ingredients

Salad

  • 1 Tbsp white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • 5 drops liquid Stevia

Instructions

Roasted Cabbage

  • Spray lightly with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Roast in oven for 15 minutes or until cabbage in softened and beginning to brown. The brown outer edges are so flavorful! Let the cabbage cool enough to handle before chopping into smaller pieces for the salad.

Notes

One color of cabbage can be used, but oh how pretty both the purple and green look! In that case, use 1/2 of one head of cabbage.
Regular balsamic vinegar is fine if you do not have white balsalmic vinegar in your pantry.

  1. In typical Sarah style, I am making this recipe today….but of course, NOT following the recipe a bit. 😉 I don’t have pecans or apples, so I am using walnuts and craisins. I added maple syrup to the dressing instead of the stevia, and I am using something that looks and tastes a bit like a cabbage from my bountiful basket (love mystery bountiful basket vegetables!). Other than that, I followed the recipe to a T! Turned out AMAZING, but never as good as when Sammi makes it for me.

  2. This looks yummy. I am a cabbage person in my salad rather than lettuce. I love the crunch and texture. I’ll be making this STAT!!! Thanks for sharing at the Momma Told Me Link Party ladies! We love ya! Muah!

  3. Yummy! This looks so good! I am definitely going to try this, and I am pinning it to my Healthy Foods board. Thanks for sharing!

  4. This looks so good! Thanks for sharing with us at the #HomeMattersParty. We hope you’ll party with us again this Friday.
