I make this once a week. My family and friends love it! I can't take it to a function without the recipe to hand out.

Who knew cabbage in salsa could be so delicious? Made with avocados, tomatoes, cabbage, and seasonings, this cabbage salsa has a wonderful combination of flavors. With a nice crunchy texture, this is an unusual salsa and we were thrilled with the results.

How To Make cabbage salsa

  • Chopped cabbage and cilantro in a bowl.
    Chop the cabbage to the desired size (I like mine a little chunky). Finely chop the cilantro by hand and add to the cabbage (make sure to rinse the cilantro under water really well).
  • Chopped green onions and jalapenos added to the bowl.
    I use a chopper to chop the green onions and jalapenos. The jalapenos need to be cleaned and sliced in half and all the seeds and membranes removed. Do not add any of the seeds or membranes until after you sample and see how hot the salsa is naturally. If the salsa is not too hot go ahead and add some of the seeds and membranes as needed.
  • Pouring a mixture of spices, lemon juice, and red wine vinegar onto the cabbage.
    Combine all the spices, lemon juice, and red wine vinegar. Add it to the cabbage and jalapeno peppers and mix together very well.
  • Adding diced tomatoes and avocados right before serving.
    Dice the tomatoes and avocados and fold them in last. If I make this recipe the night before, I do not add the tomatoes and avocados until about one (1) hour before I serve the salsa. Do not mix too much as the tomatoes and avocados will become mushy. Serve with white corn chips. Enjoy!
