My friend Kelly first introduced this yummy salad to me. My husband loves it so much that it was actually him that begged the recipe from her! We love cabbage at our house and the little wrinkles in nappa cabbage seem to hold on great to the delicious dressing. This recipe is perfect for baby or wedding showers, or any big get-together really. If you want to add some oomph then throw in a few roasted chicken breasts cut up. We had that for dinner one night and it was fantastic!
