  1. My husband doesn’t do cabbage. A bag of brocolli slaw is a good substitute. Since I still can’t eat large amounts and my husband is not a big veggie fan we often go for baby bok choy or belgian endive and small amounts of loose veggies we can by in small quantities. We make it differnt every time.

  2. Oh yes, broccoli slaw sounds like a great substitution! The variety in this type of a recipe is endless….which makes it all the better. Hope you and the husband are doing well!!

  3. 5 stars
    My husband and I absolutely LOVEDDD this recipe. We are having it everyday for lunch this week lol. It is so delicious and full of flavor. There was quite a bit of prepping involved but the cooking part was easy and well worth it!!

  4. I am so excited it’s been such a hit for you both! Thank you for sharing your feedback!
