Cabbage Crocante

Winter salad’s, spinach, and Mexican influenced food all make me think of cabbage, and what I could possibly do with cabbage.  I thought of all the endless possibilities, shredded on chili or the Montana Griddle, in a soup, or thai food.  Then while thinking about how much I miss crunchy salty snacks I came up with this wonderful creation.  Which all led me to the perfect crunchy snack and appetizer for a party or bbq!!!


Cabbage Crocante




  • 1/2 of a red or green cabbage
  • homemade salsa, try pepper mixture, or (if in a hurry canned salsa could work too)
  • homemade honey dijon
  • browned turkey burger or elk burger, or try canned tuna



Saute turkey or elk meet in a skillet.  Spice and season by choice.  Turkey burger I liked to add crushed garlic, cumin, curry powder, red pepper,and garlic salt).  Elk meat I enjoy leaving as is while browning, it already has great flavor.


Wash and chop cabbage into small wedges.


Try making your own homemade salsa, or this pepper mixture:

4 very finally chopped tomato’s, 1/2 small yellow pepper, 1 small red pepper (or use green), 1 small yellow jalapeno, 1 small Serrano, 2 cloves crushed garlic, a splash of apple cider vinegar, 1/2 fresh squeezed lemon, 1/2 l fresh squeezed lime.  Spice up with a few drops of tobassco, red pepper, chili powder, cumin, and curry powder.  I like to make mine extra spicey and just use a dollop on top of the cabbage concoction.


Display cabbage on a plate.  Dollop honey dijon onto cabbage.  Place turkey meat on top.  Sprinkle with homemade salsa or pepper mixture.
