Pickled Red Cabbage  is my recipe of the day. This is another nice prep  of  cabbage that is a bit different than fermented cabbage as sauerkraut or kimchi. It keeps a nice crispy texture being  a refrigerated pickle, but still has that great flavor.

This  pickle is great for adding  into salads or coleslaw. It works  great as a topping  for burgers or hot dogs. You can even add it to a charcuterie board as a relish to add counterpoint  flavor.
