Cooking Video for Kids: Cabbage Salad Recipe Kids Can Make

Cabbage is a great green vegetable with lasting power, so if I want to only shop every two weeks, I get lettuce for week 1 salad and cabbage for week 2.

Today we will show you a Saint Patrick’s Day inspired cabbage salad that we make all the time… Leah just asked, “Where is the recipe?” “In my head!” I said. It’s that good.

This recipe is pretty versatile and you can substitute the vinegar or herbs out for a different flavor every time!

Older kids who know how to use a chef’s knife can make this on their own and younger kiddos can help measure ingredients and mix the dressing.

Cabbage Salad Recipe Kids Can Make


  • 1/4-1/2 Cabbage
  • 1 Tbs. Balsamic vinegar (you can substitute apple cider vinegar, wine vinegar or lemon juice)
  • 1-2 Tbs. Extra virgin olive oil

  • Dill (or another herb)

  1. Cut your cabbage in half and slice out the core. Slice the cabbage into thin shreds.
  2. Pour dressing ingredients over cabbage in a large mixing bowl and mix well.
  3. If you watch the video you’ll see some guidelines for the spice amounts. 😉 If you get too much flavor, just add some more cabbage.
  4. We also like to add other toppings like red onion, feta cheese, or green onions for some variety!
