Montserrat Cabbage Salad Notes

I was in the Peace Corps on an island in the British West Indies where there was no meat. We ate a lot of fresh fruit, fresh veggies, rice, and goat. Of course the goat had some marvelous fresh spices doctoring it up, ginger, curry, fresh pepper, chilies.

  • 1 green cabbage, shredded
  • 1 small red cabbage, shredded
  • 1 green bell pepper, finely chopped

Helpful Hints

Cabbage in those convenient baggies seem to be drier than the cabbage you chop yourself.

Enjoy all day long, as the crunchiness curbs your appetite and adds marvelous fiber to your diet.

The calories are minimul along with fat content. I figure it takes more energy to digest this one.
