THE FIRST TIME I bought a red cabbage, I didn't quite know what to do with it, but after some experimenting, I came up with this recipe. It has now become my fall "comfort food".
This side dish is compatible with a variety of meat entrees, but I especially like it with a pork roast or chops.

"This is a downsized version of a recipe that belonged to my husband's mother and has been in their family for 80 years," shares Myrna Gerson of Staten Island, New York. "My husband and I got married 30 years ago, and I've been making these griddle cakes ever since."
This recipe makes a small quantity but still has old-fashioned goodness. These tender potatoes taste great with any main dish, but I especially like them with meat loaf.—Dawn Fagerstrom, Warren, Minnesota
I put this salad together with vegetables I had left in my garden. My family liked it so well, I started bringing it to community suppers and was often asked for the recipe. It's a refreshing side dish for any meat entree.
