Red cabbage apricot salad

Red cabbage and apricot salad

I am a big fan of red cabbage, raw or cooked. It is such a beautiful looking vegetable and so full of nutrients. This red cabbage and apricot salad is something I came up with on the fly. I usually make red cabbage salad with cranberries, but I wanted to serve it alongside another salad that had cranberries in it. So I decided to use dried apricots, and the result was amazing.

My husband wanted to call it “Mardi Gras salad” because of the colors, but that’s a bit of a stretch… not much of a relationship between this lean healthy salad and the idea of Mardi Gras.

To slice the cabbage thin, my preferred method is the slicing blade of my food processor. I adjust it to level 3, which is about 1/8″ thick. You can also use a mandolin, or slice it with a knife if you don’t have either one of these tools…

I like to use Turkish dried apricots that are nice and plump. They have the best flavor.

You could also add some nuts for extra crunch. Walnuts or hazelnuts pair very well with red cabbage.
