Winter Cabbage Salad Recipe

Winter Cabbage Salad Recipe

My mother made this recipe for as long as I can remember. Most times she made it seven or eight times larger than this recipe calls for! She'd store it in the refrigerator in gallon-size glass jugs for the winter, then serve it as a vegetable, salad or garnish at family meals, ladies' church luncheons and potluck parties.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling YIELD:16-20 servings


  • 2 cups cider vinegar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon mustard seed
  • 3/4 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 10 cups thinly sliced cabbage (about 2-1/4 pounds)
  • 3 medium onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 medium sweet red peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium green pepper, thinly sliced


  • 1. In a large saucepan, bring the first six ingredients to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
