Eating The Raw Cabbage As Salad

Guess what was the purpose of these cabbage slices! These prepared veggies were intended for cooking sopas and pancit bihon.  However almost  1/5 of it was gone before cooking commenced. My sister, brother and I love eating raw cabbage. Only 1/5 will be left for the dish if left unchecked. Monstrous mouth gonna eat them rapidly.

I thought it was intended only for vegetable dish, cannot be eaten raw. Then my big brother told me it taste good when eaten raw. Indeed and the taste was slightly bitter but the crunchiness make it very enjoyable.

Big brother also told me that lettuce taste better than cabbage. I disagreed cause lettuce is more bitter and less crunchy. Maybe lettuce is more nutritious – like the very bitter ampalaya.

From the on, I always grab a slice of cabbage. I often provide mayonnaise as dipping. Ketchup is good too.

Do you also eat raw cabbage as salad? Perhaps!

Cabbage is the main ingredient of coleslaw. Together with carrots but often omitted for cost-cutting purposes. The  popular burger stand, Minute Burger, is offering very affordable buy-one-take one burger. There is a catch though. Coleslaw is not included. You need to shed extra pesos for the tiny cabbage and carrot slices.

Some ingredients that goes well with cabbage salad are:

cashew nuts
lettuce
crunchy ripe tomatoes
sesame
pasta
toasted ramen or the instant noodles (not cooked)
almonds
minced onions
quail eggs
table or salted egg
rare ripe mangoes
pili nuts
peanuts
carrots
mayonnaise
ketchup

In short, any edible ingredient that will suit your taste but can be added to cabbage. The limit is your imagination.
