I eat this salad every week. I usually purchase it from Erewhon grocery store in Los Angeles but the cost is $18 a pound. A while ago I decided I’m just going to do a copycat of their recipe. I have estimated that it cost me approximately $4 a pound to make at home! Additionally, this Baja Cabbage Salad offers several health benefits, particularly for women undergoing menopause - see more about those health benefits below the recipe details.
