Red Cabbage and Apples

Fresh Red Cabbage

This healthy Red Cabbage and Apples side dish featuring red cabbage tastes better if it sits for several hours to allow the flavors to develop.


2-1/2 cups shredded red cabbage
1 large apple
3 tablespoons dry red wine
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon salt


Using a large pot, combine the shredded cabbage with the apple, red wine, vinegars, and the bay leaf. Stir well, cover, and cook on low heat for 20 to 30 minutes, until the cabbage is wilted.

When the cabbage has finished cooking, remove the bay leaf and add salt to taste.

Recipe Variation

Add 1/2 cup sliced onions and increase the balsamic vinegar to 2 tablespoons.

Did You Know?

Red cabbage takes longer to mature than green cabbage, so they usually are not as tender. This variety is perfect for serving raw in salads and slaws.
