This is such an easy salad that even converts cabbage haters! Serve with grilled, roasted or crumbed meat or as part of a selection of salads. There are any number of great adaption to this salad. Use only one type of cabbge, add parmesan or feta, use dill or another fresh herb instead of chives, or change the vinegar to balsamic or white wine. The dressing is just a ratio of 1 part vinegar to 3 parts oil so make as little or as much as you need. You could also omit the mustard, capers and sugar for a more simple salad.
