Cabbage with Vinegar

My children loved this very simple, easy to prepare dish. It is best suited to be served with stews and gumbos.


  • 1 fresh head of cabbage, small
  • 1/2 cup low-acidic white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Step 1

Using a large, sharp knife, finely slice the cabbage. It will look like straw when done.

Step 2

Combine the vinegar and water. I find the least expensive off-brand vinegar tastes the best. Pour over the cabbage in a large bowl. Depending on the yield of the cabbage, you can adjust the liquid. You want the cabbage coated but not swimming in liquid. Add black pepper and salt to taste and mix all ingredients thoroughly. Goes great with gumbos or stews.
