This is so simple and good. It's really versatile, and is an excellent side dish for southwestern, Carribean, or Mexican dishes. Very light and inexpensive. I've made it many times, and particularly like it with the chicken tamale casserole, jamaican-spiced chicken thighs, and poblano burgers from this site.
Toss some cabbage with bell peppers, chopped jalapeño, green onion, and a homemade vinegar-based dressing for a crunchy, spicy slaw.
