Grilled Red Cabbage with Magic Green Sauce

Posted by Biz on May 5, 2021

 

It’s grilling season, and I am ready for it!

I love entertaining, but sometimes I prepare so many appetizers for fear that my guests will be too hungry while I am grilling that by the time I present dinner they are no longer hungry.

But I have a solution! Grill the first course, and they can enjoy that while you finish grilling the rest of the dinner.

Have you had grilled cabbage before? It gets this nice smoky flavor, and it’s a bit wilty but still has some crunch to it. I decided to make a “green sauce” to go with not only the grilled cabbage but the steak as well. This sauce is magical – pinky swear!

gcabbage4This is kind of a chimichurri sauce, but I had a bunch of greens in my fridge that needed to be used up and this sauce has not only cilantro and parsley but spinach! Promise you won’t be able to tell. It has a nice acidic kick from the vinegar, sweetness from the honey and just enough spicy enough with the jalapeno.
