My boys love when I make this Dutch slaw because it’s just a light and refreshing side dish. The more that they crave it, the more that I’ll make it because it’s the perfect way to make cole slaw over and over again.

What pairs well with cabbage salad?

I think that pulled pork or any type of pork pairs well with cabbage! I’ve been eating this combination together for years and it’s always delicious.
