When your dinner plate could use some color and crunch, this fruit-filled red cabbage salad is a pleasing option. I like using Granny Smith apples in this recipe, but use any crisp apple you have on hand. A bit of tropical fruit, some nuts, and carrots round out this salad with great eye appeal.
Make this salad prior to moving on to the main dish of your meal; it benefits from having time to stand and let the flavors blend and for the cabbage to soften. You’ll welcome this crunchy salad with a sweet touch to serve with hearty bean dishes, BBQ-flavored plant proteins, and Tex-Mex style specialties.
