If you have read some of the other recipes on our blog, you would know that we normally try to avoid carbs from white bread, pasta, potatoes etc. and replace it with salads. This salad with red cabbage, oranges and pomegranate is another salad that we like to make. The salad is perfect as a side dish for most meat and it has a wonderful taste.
The red cabbage brings a fresh and crisp feeling to the salad – it’s just great. In Denmark red cabbage is a popular vegetable and it’s especially used to make the famous Danish Red Cabbage which is a very popular side dish for many Danish Christmas dinners. Red cabbage is rich on vitamin A and C, and is very filling – a great and healthy salad.
We would also like to recommend our coleslaw with red cabbage and apples, which is another great salad.
