One of my favorite dishes to make in the winter is red cabbage salad. This lightly cooked dish is flavorful and warming.
- 1/2 red cabbage, chopped into small stick-like pieces
- 1 green apple, peeled and chopped
- 1/2 onion, red or yellow, chopped into small slices
- 1/2 orange
- olive oil
- 1 tsp. fresh ginger root, chopped
In a wok-like saucepan, saute the onion in olive oil until translucent. Chop the apple into small cubes, discarding the core. Add the chopped ginger and chopped apple to the onions and saute for about five minutes. Add the chopped cabbage and squeeze the orange for its juice unto the cabbage mixture. Cook until the apples and cabbage are tender. Serve warm or room temperature.
