I have enjoyed making this warm cabbage salad for the past few months. 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. Not to mention the fact that cabbage is one of the most affordable veggies! Azure Standard is a great source for the fresh produce and pantry ingredients used in this recipe.

Lately, I have been eating my fair share of cabbage, both in cold-shredded  salads and warm and toasty like this recipe.  This dish is simple to make and keeps well in the refrigerator as leftovers. I love that it is low in calories, but high in flavor and uses whole food ingredients that I typically have in my kitchen.Cabbage Salad Linky1

Instructions
Roasted Cabbage
  1. Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with Silpat Non-Stick Silicone Baking Mat or parchment paper and spread cabbage chunks.
  2. Spray lightly with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. 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.
Dressing
  1. Mix all dressing ingredients together in a small bowl.
  2. Taste test. ...Yep, it's delicious!
Salad
  1. Add chopped cabbage, apple and pecans to a medium sized bowl. Pour in dressing. Stir to combine and season with additional salt and pepper if needed. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Recipe 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.
