This post was lying in my drafts for long time.As i mentioned in my Purple Cabbage Poriyal recipe, i tried poriyal and salad with this cabbage for the first time.I must thank my friend Shalini for telling this simple and easy Indian style salad recipe.It was very nice and we just loved its crunchy taste.The same recipe can be followed for Red Cabbage too.U have to consume this salad immediately to enjoy its Fresh,crunchy taste.As u all know,Purple Cabbage is loaded with Anti oxidants which helps the body to fight against diseases and also makes our skin clear & flexible .I have used Olive oil and pepper powder for salad dressing.U can also try adding Roasted & chopped Almonds or ground nuts to make it more crunchy with nutty flavour.By this way,kids may like it.
