St. Patrick’s Day is this Thursday. It is traditional to eat corned beef and cabbage to celebrate, but if you are like me and don’t like cooked cabbage or mayonnaise-based coleslaw, it doesn’t feel much like a celebration…That’s why I am sharing my absolute favorite cabbage dish with you today. A super simple vinegar slaw with all the traditional veg – cabbage and carrots, with a few twists.
