Recipe of the Week

With St. Patrick's Day this week cabbage is on sale. Even if your family does not usually eat cabbage, they will like this salad.(It is the only way my family will eat cabbage!) If you serve it for March 17 with Irish Soda Bread and teach them a little about Ireland they just might have a new favorite vegetable! See what you think!
