    Cabbage salad is excellent when fresh but over time it will start to break down and lose color resulting in a really dark brownish hue that isn’t anywhere near as appealing to look at so ensure to leave enough time to make it while everything else for your meal is cooking, but what’s most important is what you choose to serve it with.
