What Is Green Cabbage?

It’s a green, leafy vegetable that grows into a big ball. It’s very nutritious, versatile, delicious and inexpensive. Green cabbage is famous for being cooked with corned beef for St. Patrick's Day, but it can also be used for so many more dishes.

Green cabbage is also different from red cabbage and Napa cabbage. Napa cabbage is a type of Chinese cabbage and looks oval in shape—with light green leaves—while green cabbage is found in a big ball, almost like Boston lettuce. Red cabbage is obviously different in color, but it's also found in a smaller ball and is a bit more peppery in flavor.
