Oriental Cabbage salad is a favorite around our house. I personally love the crunch of the cabbage and the sweet tangy dressing. This is one of my classic go-to salads for barbecues or parties- it is such a crowd pleaser. I always get asked for the recipe, so here it is! I feel like this salad has been around the block a few times, most of my friends have had it and have a variation of the salad they love. Some add chicken (which I love), some add in more veggies like shredded carrots. There are a million ways to make this salad your own.
