Pork with Cabbage Salad

I feel like cabbage is an unloved vegetable. It is so versatile, from coleslaw to soup it can do just about anything. And yet, we often relegate cabbage to the land of forgotten vegetables. It hasn’t gotten a new image like brussels sprouts or become trendy like kale. It is still just cabbage, and I wish others could love cabbage as much as us.

The sweetness of the apples just plays off the cabbage in the best way. When you add it to the pork, the flavor profiles will just rock your world!
