This is the time of year when cabbage tends goes on sale, especially right before St. Patrick’s Day.

When the price is super cheap it’s hard to pass it up.

I usually buy too many and end up having to stuff them in the nooks and crannies of my refrigerator just to get them to fit.

Cabbage lasts nicely in the fridge and it’s wonderful in salads, tacos, soups, or when sautéed or even steamed.

And it’s so good made into coleslaw too.

Have you had coleslaw in a sandwich before?  

Here’s a sandwich with quick and easy homemade coleslaw made with sliced corned beef “Corned Beef and Slaw Sandwich“.
