    I made this this past weekend and it’s very very good! I’ve been eating it all this week at work. I took a big head of cabbage instead of the bag of pre-shredded cabbage. In the past I’ve found that if I use the bag it goes bad faster than if I use a fresh head of cabbage. I usually make enough of something to eat all week at work. Sometimes things get a little old come Thursday, but oh, well! I should have made more of the dressing than I did but that’s ok! I have two days more left of it but I will finish it.

    I’ll make this again! Thanks for the recipe! I can’t wait to try more of these!!!

      I am glad you enjoyed the recipe! I do the same thing–I’ll make a dish, pack it for my work lunches and enjoy it all week. Usually by mid-week, I’ve revamped it and turned it into an entirely new dish 🙂
