This recipe was the result of being given several heads of cabbage and getting tired of coleslaw so I just went with this. My husband and I both love it and it is so easy to do. We like it sweet/sour but of you want it more one of the other adjust the sugar/vinegar mix. Also add or subtract any of the other vegetables wanted. Vegatarians could just eliminate the sausage steps.
