      This has the most amazing flavor. It met the seal of approval w/ the in-laws so I know I'm not delusional. I only did half the head of cabbage but needed the full amount of additional ingredients to get the cabbage, carrot & onion actually submerged in the liquid. Chopping the cabbage in thin slices w/ a big knife was so much easier than trying to grate it. Thanks for the great recipe. Will make this again & again.

      Nice. I made a half batch to serve with pupusas. The other family members did not care for it, but they tend not to like cider vinegar.

      I omited the oil and sugar and added canned sliced jalapenos for a little kick. Enjoyed it.
