The Best Red Cabbage Salad

 

I promise you this: this salad will be your go-to potluck dish this summer. Only a few ingredients, (and inexpensive ones) and super easy to make, this salad is a winnah.

Honestly, there isn’t much more to say about this salad but that it’s really, really good (and I’m not just being lazy about writing). Its amazing what a few simple ingredients can do when they really work well together.

Ingredients
  1. 4 Tbsp grated yellow onion
  2. 1 Tbsp celery salt
  3. 1/2 cup sugar
  4. 1 large head red cabbage (aka purple cabbage) chopped thin
  5. 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  6. 1/3 cup olive oil
  7. 1 cup crumbled blue cheese
  8. 1 cup slivered, toasted almonds
  9. fresh ground black pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Combine onion, sugar and celery salt in a large bowl. Let sit for one hour.
  2. Add cabbage and combine.
  3. Pour oil and vinegar over cabbage and combine again. Season with black pepper to taste.
  4. Top with blue cheese and almonds and enjoy!
Notes
  1. If you're not going to serve this immediately, wait to top with the almonds and blue cheese.
  2. When I bring this salad camping, I make the onion and sugar mixture in the bottom a big bowl and layer the cabbage on top. I stir it together and dress it right before we're getting ready to eat and top it with the blue cheese and almonds at the last second. Using this method I can do the prep a day ahead of time. Make sure to keep it cold though!
