Cabbage, Corn & Pepper Salad

I had this salad at my sister’s home last week. We were visiting her in California. It was a great visit with lots of great food!

She got the recipe from a friend of hers, I don’t know who it was. The salad was a bit sweet for Murray & I so I have made a few changes to it!…Hope my sister doesn’t mind!! Also, there were some chopped green onions in the salad & I am not a real fan of that & I happen to have some chives in the freezer from our garden so I substituted the chives for the green onion. If you don’t have have chives use the green onion if you want

I think that you can make this salad your own by adding some other things to it. The recipe has cabbage, corn niblets & chopped red pepper. I think that any coloured pepper will work…whichever pepper you like. Also, I think that more corn would be good… some pomegranate seeds would be delicious as well if you have some. I you like your salads sweeter, add more sugar.

This salad is better the longer it sits, so make it an hour or longer before you want to eat it . There is not a lot of dressing in this salad, so if you want more, just make more dressing & add it

Here is my recipe


1 small 2 lb cabbage or use a pre-shredded bag of cabbage or coleslaw mix will be fine

2 sweet red pointed peppers but.. you can use 1 or 2 regular peppers..any colour you like

1 cup of frozen cooked corn niblets

1/4 cup chopped chives or chop up about 3 green onion,,,use the white & green parts, but trim the ends…


1/3 cu-p seasoned rice vinegar

2/3 cup vegetable oil…,I use canola oil

1 tbsp sugar


  1. If you are using a whole cabbage, grate it in your food processor so that it is thin.. if you like your cabbage thicker you can slice it…
  2. Put the prepared cabbage into a large bowl. If you are using a pre-shredded bag of cabbage, wash & dry it if necessary & put it into the bowl
  3. Seed the peppers. Cut the peppers into thin strips then thinly slice them. Put these into the bowl with the cabbage
  4. Cook the corn niblets, I cooked them in the microwave
  5. Add the corn to the bowl with the cabbage & peppers
  6. Add teh chives or green onions
  7. Give it a good mix so all of the ingredients are well combined
  8. Now, make the dressing… mix the rice vinegar, oil & sugar together.
  9. Pour the dressing over the vegetables & mix, mix, mix.. you want all of the vegetables coated in the dressing.
  10. Serve alongside anything!!

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
