Because it’s pure, 100 percent, 150 pro0f cabbage. Because cabbage is the vegetable kingdom's version of the gift that keeps on giving.

Sumi Salad IS a great potluck salad. Colorful (use red cabbage or mix and match with green). Crunchy. Tasty. Easy. Open to improvisation.

Go ahead. We won’t tell the Salt Police.
