Purple Cabbage Salad From Susie Fishbein
Artscroll Press
The recipe for this salad comes from Susie Fishbein's wonderful cookbook Passover by Design: Picture-Perfect Kosher by Design Recipes for the Holiday, published in 2008 by ArtScroll/Shaar Press.

The salad tastes best if it can be refrigerated for at least an hour before serving, so it's a great one to make early in the day. I'm often asked to bring this as a side-dish to family dinners and barbecues.

This recipe appears on p. 82 of Passover by Design: Picture-Perfect Kosher by Design Recipes for the Holiday, by Susie Fishbein. Used by permission of ArtScroll/Shaar Press, Brooklyn NY
