Curried Cabbage Coconut Salad

This curried cabbage and coconut salad recipe is a great alternative to coleslaw and is packed full of flavour.

I am playing around with a lot of cabbage recipes at the moment, simply because it’s cheap, low in carbs and we love the vegetable.  We normally have cabbage in some form of cheese dish but I wanted something else without the dairy.

This is a great alternative to coleslaw and is full of flavour.   Just like coleslaw it improves with some chilling time.  You could play around with the spices too if you wanted it hotter.   I loved it and scoffed a bowl of it under the guise of “taste testing”.  Another simple and tasty dish!  So simple to make the Chief Taster could possibly whip up a batch!

    Another cabbage lover here…. I almost always buy the Chinese type that shreds easier, but I guess for this recipe it’s best to use a sturdier kind…

    love all the flavors!
