10 Best Crunchy Cabbage Salad Recipes

Most people envision salads with a foundation of iceberg or romaine lettuce, spinach, or even kale. There are, however, numerous good cabbage salad recipes available.

Of course, not all of these appear to be fresh garden salads or items from the Zaxby's Zalads menu.

Cabbage salad recipes might include ethnic dishes, coleslaw recipes, and other ingredients.

For this list, I've compiled ten cabbage salad dishes that satisfy all three criteria!

And if you came here seeking for the recipe for KFC's delectable coleslaw, you're in luck because it's also on this list.

Continue reading for more delicious salad recipes.

1. Regular Cabbage Salad

This dish is exactly what it says it is: a simple cabbage salad that fits with almost anything.

It's just shredded red cabbage, green cabbage, and carrots.

In truth, it resembles coleslaw, but it isn't quite as moist. Instead, it's a refreshing salad with a tangy dressing.

You'll need cider vinegar, salt, Dijon mustard, white sugar, and your preferred oil to make it.

You can make your dressing ahead of time and use it on anything, or you can make it on the spot.

In any case, this simple – yet wonderful – salad shouldn't take more than 5 or 10 minutes to prepare.

2. Asian Cabbage Salad

Asian cabbage salad has a similar red cabbage, green cabbage, and carrot foundation to the regular variety above, but it's heartier.

There are also almonds, thinly sliced bell peppers, fresh cilantro, and shelled edamame. The dressing, too, is unique. 

 

3. Mediterranean Cabbage Salad

Mediterranean cabbage salad, believe it or not, is even more complicated than the first two!

It includes radishes, fresh dill, green onions, and other similar ingredients.

The dressing is bright and tangy, with a Dijon mustard and garlic basis.

The lime juice brightens the flavor even more, while the red pepper provides a hint of spice.

Overall, it's a refreshing side salad that goes well with most main meals.

4. Sesame Lime Cabbage Salad

Sesame lime cabbage salad, which takes only 15 minutes to prepare, is always a hit at most parties and outdoor gatherings.

It nicely balances sweetness and tanginess, while the sesame seeds and fresh vegetables provide crunch.

It goes well with most main meals, but I think it's especially good with BBQ.

5. KFC Coleslaw

And now for the cabbage salad recipe that many of you have been waiting for: imitation KFC coleslaw.

It tastes so excellent that most people can't believe how simple it is to prepare.

There is no cooking required, and all you need are finely shredded cabbage, carrots, mayo, milk, buttermilk, onion, lemon juice, sugar, onion powder, salt, and pepper.

Simply combine everything except the cabbage and carrots to make the dressing, then pour it over the salad. Combine all of the ingredients and refrigerate in the refrigerator overnight.

Voila! KFC coleslaw!

6. Indian Cabbage Salad

This vibrantly colored salad has a lot more heat than the others on the list, but it doesn't make it any less delicious.

There are a few components in this recipe that may be difficult to acquire, but everything else should be available at your local Indian market or online.

It, like the others, requires little effort and time to prepare, and it goes well with most ethnic foods.

7. Apple Cabbage Salad With Walnuts and Gorgonzola

This is the most like a garden-fresh salad of the options I've provided you here.

This is due to the fact that the basis will be an actual salad mix (along with Napa cabbage).

To that, add sliced apples, baby carrots, fresh chives, chopped walnuts, and as much Gorgonzola cheese as you can handle.

(I like Gorgonzola, so it's more than a third of a cup for me.)

Because this is a "typical" salad, you can add any salad dressing you choose, but the author's apple cider vinaigrette recipe complements the cheese and apples well.

Unless you're in a hurry and don't have time (or the supplies) to make it, I highly recommend using it instead of something store-bought.

8. Simple White Cabbage Salad

This straightforward white cabbage salad has only white cabbage, fine sea salt, vegetable oil, white wine vinegar, parsley, and black pepper.

It has a clear, light flavor and a crisp texture that combines well with almost anything.

Of course, there's not much to taste here but cabbage and vinegar.

If those aren't two things you appreciate, this may not be the cabbage salad for you. It is, however, really simple to create!

9. Spicy Mexican Coleslaw

Spicy Mexican coleslaw resembles "normal" coleslaw. It has shredded cabbage, carrots, and cilantro.

The flavor is what sets them apart. Of course, the cilantro adds a unique twist, but it's the lime dressing that delivers the biggest punch.

Don't be fooled by the label; it's not all that spicy.

The cumin gives it a slight bite, but the lime, garlic, and other ingredients mostly balance it out.

10. Thai Cabbage Salad

Finally, Thai cabbage salad is a terrific option for those of us who like our salads with an Asian flair.

The dressing includes garlic, sambal oelek, fish sauce, lime juice, peanut oil, and coconut aminos.

Green cabbage, romaine lettuce, snap peas, carrots, red bell peppers, salted peanuts, and cilantro are all required ingredients for the salad.

They'll make a sweet and tangy salad that goes well with everything but is filling enough to eat on its own.
