Nicaraguan Cabbage Salad

We found this recipe and decided to try it. It was quite basic cabbage salad, but more vinegary than I’ve made before. We refrigerated the leftovers and had them for lunch next day, and the flavour of chili pepper had grown much stronger. Keep that in mind if you prefer milder chili taste and want to make the salad hours before serving.
