This purple cabbage is just so beautiful. There are so many colorful options of vegetables to use in your recipes. While I could use the everyday green cabbage, which I have many times, this purple cabbage just dressed up the side dish so much that I couldn’t pass it up. Just look at this picture of the cabbage and the carrot. I think I could crochet something with these colors…yum 🙂
I have used a box grater to shred the cabbage very fine, or used a food processor grater. For this recipe today, I just used a chef knife and sliced the red cabbage very thin. The carrot was shredded using my box grater.
Food Prep Ahead of Time
The cabbage can be shredded a few days ahead and stored in the refrigerator until you are ready to make the coleslaw. The dressing can be made ahead of time too. I generally add the dressing to the cabbage about 1 hour before it is to be eaten. If there is any left over, it will keep in the refrigerator for a day or two; however, the cabbage will get quite soggy. My family still gobbles it up…they don’t seem to mind.

I love purple cabbage! Try the cabbage with walnuts, Roquefort cheese and mayonnaise, just wonderful.
