  • About This Recipe

    “This is a really morish salad, rich in flavour. It is great served with just about anything! And an all time favourite of many to whom I have served it too. Also a good salad to prepare in advance – infact it’s better if it is – (the ‘older’ it gets, the better it gets!!!!)”

  • “I love salads you can prepare in advance. I skipped the onions since I’m not a fan, and was out of olives so l left them out as well but will definitely add them in next time because I know they will go great with the feta. Thank you.”

  • “I did not have a red or a green bell pepper, but I did have 1 yellow bell pepper. I also only had kalamata olives, so I used them in place of black olives. I just realized I forgot to include (the optional) clove of crushed garlic, however, this was a really nice salad! I can’t wait to let the flavors marinate a bit and try it again. This was a great way to use the red cabbage and cherry tomatoes we have overflowing from our garden this summer.I actually only made half the recipe for the dressing, & I added some oregano & ground black pepper to the dressing, just because I like that combination (the dressing is almost identical to one I make homemade all the time). I probably used only half of the amount of Feta called for, but for me, it was plenty! Thanks for sharing this healthy recipe.”

  • “I have made this for years, it is in my old red Betty Crocker cookbook, called Confetti Slaw!A cousin just asked me for the recipe, and rather than type it all out, I looked for it online!I agree, it is better with age, and EVERYONE loves it – it is pretty too!”

  • “This salad was totally AWESOME!This is my first time EVER using red cabbage.Since I love olives, I got carried away and also added green olives minus the pimentos, other than that I followed the recipe as written and it was absolutely DELICIOUS!Thank you Karin, I’m adding this one to my recipe files.”

  • “Thank you for a delicious and beautiful recipe. I had orange and red peppers on hand, but not green. Beautiful colors! My husband has requested this dressing for other salads as well.”

  • “A great salad.I’ve had the same ingredients on greens but never thought to do it on cabbage. I’m afraid I wimped out and couldn’t handle all the vinegar in the dressing, so I added a couple of tsp. of sugar.If making ahead, prepare all the ingredients but put them together just before serving.The cabbage will discolor everything if it sets.”

  • “Thanks for this recipe Karin. It was a lovely salad-lots of interesting flavours, easy to make, a nice dressing, and good colour amongst the other salads I made.I used one of the cheeses we make at work-a tasty with carraway seeds-instead of the feta, and the carraway flavour worked well with the red cabbage.”
