Cabbage Salsa

This is such a fresh, unique summer dip. And a great way to eat cabbage. Every time we serve it people love it.

1 head green cabbage
green onion (2 or 3 finely chopped)
peppers (red or yellow, diced)
tomato (diced)
1/2 bunch of cilantro (more if you like it)
black beans, black eye peas (1 can each, drained and rinsed)
Mezzetta tamed jalapenos (chopped)
1 c. white vinegar
1 Good Seasons Italian Dressing Mix (click the link to see what the packet looks like)
couple tablespoons of jalapeno juice
fresh lime juice

Chop it all up. Mix up dressing packet with vinegar, jalapeno juice & lime juice. Toss and serve with tortilla chips.

I'm sorry that these ingredients and amounts are not precise - start with as much cabbage as you'd like and adjust the other ingredients accordingly so you have a nice variety of textures in each bite. Feel free to leave questions in the comment thread.

Mmmmmmm, summer!

Mmmm... this is fantastic. A neighbor just gave me a head of cabbage and some lemons and I have been asking myself what to do with them.

Thanks for sharing!

It's really good BUT I would only put half the Italian packet and half the lime and then add more to taste because it was just too acidic for my personal tastes.
