This is good as a main dish or as a side.

Hints:
I run a knife through the shredded cabbage to cut the shreds into shorter lengths (about 3 " long). It makes it easier to eat

If you use red cabbage, remember, the color tends to bleed out.

Also, try using fresh mung bean sprout. If, you can't find them in the store, with little effort, you can grow your own.
