She’s not much of a chef but what she does make me is always delicious! This cabbage salad was one of the very first things that she ever “cooked” for me and I LOVE IT so much. I say “cooked” because it doesn’t actually require any cooking, just chopping (and throwing the vegan buffalo wings in the air fryer).

We’ve changed and perfected the recipe over the past few months and this version of it is what we’ve come to LOVE and crave on a regular basis. I’d say that we have this salad at least a couple times per month but sometimes it’s weekly.

Ingredients in this cabbage salad:

  • Purple/ red cabbage
  • Carrots
  • Onion
  • Buffalo wings (we LOVE the Morning Star Farms vegan buffalo wings which we cook in the air fryer for 10 minutes)
  • Radishes
  • Blue Cheese dressing
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Tortilla chips for CRUNCH
