    French Tart's Note:

    A dazzling coleslaw salad for your winter festive table. Red cabbage is mixed with apples, carrots, pecans and onions which is then dressed with a tangy mustard and nut vinaigrette - fabulous! Plus, the colours as well as the taste, is amazing! This goes so well with cold cuts, pies, tarts, quiches, buffets as well as being a wonderful supper or light lunch accompaniment. I do all the shredding and grating in my food processor, it is so easy and cuts down on time. You can of course grate and shred by hand - it will just take a little longer! I sometimes add semi-dried cranberries and grated beetroot - these are listed as optional exras. The pie shown in the photograph, is my Little Jack Horner's Christmas Chicken, Fruit and Stuffing Pie!, which I often serve with this winter slaw salad - they make a wonderful combination. (This recipe was posted to our personal preferences - with a light dressing and not a creamy or heavy dressing; if you like your salads with more dressing - please adjust the dressing quantities up!)

      Delish our family loved this. I didnt have walnut oil, white wine vinegar or pecans. So I subbed olive oil, white vinegar and toasted walnuts. I also added a tsp honey and some crumbles blue cheese for extra zing! Thanks so much! Was trying to find a new and fun way to eat red cabbage!

      I loved this, and so did my whole family! I grew red cabbage in my garden for the first time this year, and was anxious to make something delicious. I agree about increasing the amount of dressing (I did, and actually doubled it). I also added a splash of orange juice and lemon juice to sweeten it up. I used regular sugar too. Thank you for this wonderful recipe! Very fresh--not just for the winter.

      What a delicious and beautiful salad ! I made it exactly as posted except for the onion (raw onion and I do not get along.) I did add the nuts and cranberries, and found the combination with the mustard vinaigrette to be delightfully complex and refreshing. I am sure I will be making this often - thanks for sharing the recipe.
