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.
I brought this salad to a family dinner, and it was a huge hit. I shredded everything up in the food processor and then mixed it all in a 2 gallon zip lock bag - this made it super easy to travel, just took along the bowl and dumped it all in when I got there. I made an extra batch of the dressing to serve on the side in case anyone wanted more than was on it. The dressing itself is very good - I might make it just for other salads. I think it would be good with spinach and apples maybe. All in all a great fall recipe full of healthy veggies. Thanks for posting -I will be making this again.
This didn't live up to our expectations. It was very dry, almost as if it weren't dressed at all, and the onion was overpowering even though I cut it down by about a third because I knew my onion was rather strong. I'm rating it more on potential than actual execution -- if you doubled the dressing and left out the onion the cabbage/apple/pecan flavor ought to be absolutely delicious. Not having a food processor, I used a chef's knife to shred the cabbage to resemble kraut and still came in under 15 minutes prep time.
Made half a recipe but forgot the apple. Loved the dressing.
Added cranberries. Everyone thought the onion overpowered the salad. If made again, only 1/4 cup of onion will be used.
Love this recipe!!! It's absolutely delicious. Great mix of flavors and so colorful. One of my friends I invited over for dinner even asked for the recipe before leaving. I didn't have walnut oil, so I just used olive oil which worked out just fine.
Wow! Wow! WOW! This is a delicious recipe! I think this will be our family's default slaw recipe from now on. I made it as directed, and added the optional beet root. I also, as other reviewers suggested, doubled the dressing recipe. My red onion was large, so I only used a quarter. Wonderful!
Dazzling, for certain! My family loved this slaw! I made as directed; the next time I prepare I think I'll add dried cranberries! Thanks!
