It will come as no surprise, I am a BIG fan of cabbage, the main ingredient in a slaw.

Anything with cabbage is A-okay with me.

My love for this vegetable only grows with the fact that it is so stinkin’ affordable. Being the frugal shopper that I am, I pick up a head every trip.

You can make this salad the night before or the same day. Just be sure to allow the salad to refrigerate at least 2 hours so the dressing has enough time to marinate the slaw.
