Busy families are always looking for versatile sides and this one delivers big time. A mix of different cabbages makes an attractive, tasty dish that can stand on its own as a salad, serve as a side dish to roasted chicken or pork, or be the base of a cool and crunchy dinner salad topped with grilled shrimp or chicken. The fresh cabbage is hearty enough to hold up to the ginger honey dressing without wilting immediately making it a great recipe for entertaining meals. Keep some of the dressing on-hand for a quick add of flavor to grilled salmon fillets as well.
