Crispy Red Cabbage Salad

Red cabbage is a genuine Christmas ingredient in Denmark and Sweden. Often it’s served cooked with sugar. My mom and me made this crispier version of a Red Cabbage Salad some Christmases ago and we’ve been keeping on making it ever since. We often bring it to dinner parties around Christmas time and tonight we are bringing it to a family dinner at David’s moms place.

    How much do you mean by 1 pot of parsley?

    I love making this with a mandoline so that the cabbage is super fine and soft - it's so good raw! What a good idea to add grapes and walnuts! Will try it that way next.

  • What a happy-looking salad! Very creative use of ingredients - will remember this one.
