It’s cabbage season! Not sure how to use all of that beautiful, seasonal cabbage? Asian slaw to the rescue!

We have been getting cabbage from our CSA on the regular lately, and they have been humungous! My husband’s not crazy about cabbage, and so many cabbage recipes just don’t call for a lot. Cabbage rolls are delicious, but they only use a few leaves, and you’re still left with most of the head.

Cabbage might seem like kind of a boring food, but it’s actually a nutritional powerhouse! It’s a cruciferous vegetable, which means it’s packed with vitamins and minerals for a healthier you.
