In North Florida cabbage grows abundantly in our mild winter growing season. There is no possibility that it could survive the Florida heat and make it to the summer picnic table. In the winter one of our main salads is coleslaw and in the summer, we turn our attention to other salads that reflect our growing season.
This time of year the varieties of cabbage growing in our garden is a beautiful assortment of savoy, green and red cabbages. This also includes tatsoi and bok choy, which are a variety of Asian cabbages that have a mild flavor and are easy to work with in salads, soups, stews and main meal dishes.
There are endless varieties of cabbages available to the home cook, that allows us to create a spectacular array of dishes which are contemporary, healthy and delicious.
This coleslaw has an incredibly fresh taste-no doubt using fresh cabbage straight from the garden dirt helps this salad shine but, fresh simple flavors, and the lime really kick-up this slightly off the grid traditional coleslaw.
