Savoy cabbage has a wonderful, mild flavor and the leaves are very crunchy. Therefor it is a great candidate for coleslaw. We really enjoyed and hope you will as well.

  11. Slaws tend to get soggy if the dressing has been put on too early. Some people prefer the wilted, softer texture. We prefer the crunchiness of raw so we wit to put the dressing on until just before serving. However you prefer, mis the salad well and enjoy.
