Red cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable that is a good source of vitamin K and provides some calcium, magnesium, and zinc, needed to build and maintain healthy bones. Cabbage is also high in antioxidants that help reduce health risks. Serve this sweet and tangy side dish with pork or your favorite protein.
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
4 cups red cabbage, thinly sliced (about ¼ large head)
½ tsp caraway seeds
½ tsp salt
1 crisp, sweet apple (ex. Gala, fuji, honeycrisp), cut into match sticks
1 shallot, minced
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
½ tsp Dijon mustard
½ tsp freshly ground pepper
2 tbsp chopped walnuts, toasted
1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add cabbage, caraway seeds and salt. Cook, covered, stirring occasionally until tender, 8-10 minutes.
2. Remove from heat. Add apple, shallot, vinegar, mustard, and pepper. Stir until combined.
3. Sprinkle with toasted nuts and serve.
Tip: To toast the chopped walnuts, heat a small, dry skillet over medium-low heat. Add nuts and cook, stirring until lightly browned and fragrant, 2-3 minutes.
