Cabbage Salsa!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

We had joined the kids for dinner a few nights ago, and as luck would have it, we decided to enjoy dinner out. Once the decision was made to eat out, next we had to decide where. Quickly we all found agreeing on Mexican food.

Once there we were given the usual basket of chips and a bowl of salsa, except this, was not the usual tomato salsa, this was a delicious chopped cabbage salsa. Once I tasted it, I am pretty sure I ate more than my fair share, but fortunately another bowl was delivered before we could even ask!

Now the quest was on, how could I make this myself, at home? I love the internet for times like this, a few key taps and I had a plethora of cabbage salsa recipes to look through. Now seemed exactly like the restaurant salsa, but that did not get in the way of giving it a try. And I must say, while not exact, it is very tasty. I will be making this again because there is always a reason to enjoy crunchy chips with salsa.

  1. This is great, Melynda! It beats the same old tomato salsa we have all the time. Looking forward to trying it with cabbage. Thanks! I'm back to blogging now, couldn't stay away! :-)

  2. How unusual. With the ingredients given I can't even imagine how that tastes. But I do know, with that ingredient list, my husband would love it. I think I'll make him some.
