  1. I’ve made this salad for years. I use shredded chicken as well to make it an entree.

    The one thing I do is let people put the noodles in their own servings, because if there are any leftovers the noodles get really soggy and nasty for the next day. 🙂

  2. Hallo Leslie, Mary B here in Essex. Hope you are well. Love the recipes! I too love crunchy food. Have you got a recipe for red cabbage cooked in the oven? If not, I can send it to you as it is really delicious.

  3. Hello Mary Baker! Clearly only the best among Leslie’s readership! And I love red cabbage.

    Do we know the origin of this recipe? I call it “Gale’s Cabbage Salad” because Gale gave it to me, and I make it fairly often. It always disappears at Hall potlucks, as does that Sunset recipe for crunchy salad with snow peas and yummy dressing. Do you recognize the one I’m thinking of?

    • Hallo BW, the red cabbage recipe to which I was referring is yummy and is as follows:
      1 red cabbage finely shredded;
      1 onion finely chopped;
      2 apples (eating, not cooking variety) peeled and chopped;
      3 tablesp red wine vinegar;
      2 tablesp brown sugar;
      1 teasp nutmet or cinnamon;
      2 cloves (optional but must be removed before serving);
      handful of raisins.
      Cover dish. Shove all in low temp oven for TWO hours (you need patience for this dish and not much urgent hunger!!). Stir from time to time. Adjust for sweetness adding more sugar if necessary. Serve as an accompaniment to meat of any kind. Buon appetito!!
