Spring Recipes: Easy Cabbage & Cucumber Salad
This Cabbage & Cucumber Salad incorporates two different types of cabbage: purple and green. Blended with sliced cucumbers, this dish becomes a beautiful work of art to place on your dining room table when enjoying a meal with loved ones. It’s also a healthy option, with plenty of Vitamins C and K, as well as magnesium and fiber, making it an ideal salad when looking for healthy meals this season.
The Secret to Preparing This Easy Cabbage & Cucumber Salad
Let it marinate for a while! This is the perfect recipe to make the morning of a gathering, or even the night before. Unlike most lettuces, cabbage is a hearty leaf and it takes time for flavors to fully penetrate, so give the dressing a few hours to fully marry with the cabbage strips to create a truly irresistibly delicious salad.
What You Need to Make This Recipe
We have to mention our absolute favorite cook- and bakeware, which will help you fill out your menu with your go-to warm recipes.
We made the switch to Caraway Home a while ago in our own homes because of its ceramic, toxin-free material, but we fell in love with our cook and bakeware for its luxurious style and design. Plus, its non-stick surface allows for the easiest cleanup and stress-free time in your kitchen.

The Serveware & Dinnerware
When serving Cabbage & Cucumber Salad, we recommend using decorative serveware and functional salad and soup bowls. Our Speckled Cream Stoneware Serving Bowl offers a unique, one-of-a-kind look while carefully handcrafted dinnerware lends yet another distinct component to your presentation.
