A different take on a cabbage side dish, this Red Cabbage Salad combines crunchy, sweet, tangy and salty for an unexpectedly different salad.

Red Cabbage Salad on Taste and Tell

Please just trust me on this one.

Every once in awhile, you come across a recipe that you absolutely fall in love with. But then you aren’t sure if you should share it, because, well – you’re not sure if anyone else will actually even give it a chance. I mean, when you browse Pinterest, how often do you actually repin a cabbage salad??

But seriously – just give this one a try. I found myself with some extra red cabbage, and on my search for recipes to use it up, I came across this recipe. I thought – hey, I love all of the ingredients, surely this will be a good side dish for dinner.

Honestly – I could not. get. enough.

I ended up making more the next day (to photograph – I never intended to blog this when I first made it) and I devoured that whole second salad. I actually made this a couple of months ago, and I still find myself craving it.

I do have to say that my husband wasn’t over the moon in love with it like I was. But maybe that’s just because he’s not a side dish lover kind of guy. But I would eat this once a week and I’d be happy! And it is perfect for this time of year when there is so little in season.

This is my perfect winter salad. That I’ll probably be making year round. 😉

  1. YUM! I will definitely be making this. I love red cabbage salads! I am a huge texture person so the crunch of the cabbage and pecans and chewiness of the raisins is enough to sell me. I think I may try this warmed!

    I’m loving the sound of that salad (minus raisins for me, not a raisin fan.)

    I’m always looking for new ways to convince the.boy to love cabbage. Not that I love it SO much, but it definitely has its virtues! SO trying this.
