I have a slight obsession with red cabbage that started about a year ago. I am not really sure what happened but all of the sudden it became one of my favorite vegetables. I just think it is such a versatile vegetable. It is good steamed, roasted, raw or even grilled. Have you seen my cabbage steak recipe?
I have had a craving lately for red cabbage, orange and avocado. It sounded like a magical combination and I finally put it all together this past weekend and it was better that I imagined. It was so delicious that I HAD to shoot and post it for you all.
This salad can be thrown together quickly and a perfect side dish for warmer weather!
