I think I want to start living off this salad. It's crunchy. It's yummy. It's got a lot of black pepper (which I love). And it's totally healthy. If that doesn't sell you, here's a fun fact: My husband will actually eat this for dinner as long as I serve some bread on the side. One quick warning: The dressing tastes pretty bad on its own, so keep your fingers out. This is because it's really strong, but when lightly coated over cabbage, it's delicious.
