Nicaraguan Cabbage Vinegar Salad

Cabbage Salad

I have been thinking on what recipes that I have been eating for years would be a really good treat or entree for my current eating plan.  My wife is Nicaraguan and their cuisine mainly consists of fried foods but there  are some  gems that are amazing in flavor and healthy.  This post today though is really about one dish that my mother-in-law makes that is absolutely amazing.  Nicaraguan Cabbage Salad!!!! Lately I have been pairing this salad with my lunch and it just makes the flavors pop and its absolutely delicious.

It is super easy to make and literally if you make a bowl of it will be good for days.

Nicaraguan Cabbage Vinegar Salad


  • 1 Head of Cabbage
  • 1 Tomato
  • 1/2 Onion
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Water
  • Salt to taste


  1. This is very simple to put together.
  2. Shred the cabbage to however thick you would like it.
  3. Dice the tomato
  4. Dice the Onion
  5. Now this is where it can get a bit tricky you need to start off with about 1 cup of the apple cider vinegar for a normal head of cabbage if your cabbage is bigger you will need to increase this
  6. Take how much ever vinegar you added and now add 1/2 of that in water. Essentially this is 1/2 part water to 1 part vinegar. So if you added 1 cup of the vinegar add 1/2 cup of water
  7. Mix well
  8. Enjoy
