Prep Time: 30 min

Cook Time: 5 min

Easy Simple Delicious Cabbage Salad that you can make and eat right away.

This lighter healthier version is delicious and full of veggies, flavor and made with heart healthy olive oil. If you love pickled food you will love this cabbage salad. Its tart and tangy. Easy and quick to make, ready to eat as it does not need to be fermented. Tastes better each day as the flavors mingle. It's a perfect summer salad, but we love it all year long. This makes a big batch and is great to have on hand if you have guests coming.
