Cabbage, Scallion and Cilantro Slaw

This is a simple side dish, or a great topper for a pulled pork sandwich which is how I purposed it.  Variations of this are endless of course but I did enjoy this combo.

1/2 medium cabbage (green)
3 scallions
1/4 cup, chopped cilantro
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp sugar
1-2 tsp salt

Split cabbage half into 2, and remove core.  Slice on a mandolin or with a knife into uniform strips (short way) about 1/8 of an inch thick.  Toss with salt in a large bowl.  With your hands, squeeze cabbage strands and "massage" in the salt for about 1 minute. Chop scallions and add to the cabbage. Mix vinegar, water, sugar and cilantro.  Pour the dressing over the cabbage and toss quickly.  Let stand for about 10-15 minutes and it's ready to eat.
