Red cabbage salad. Discover the perfect balance of taste and nutrition with our delicious red cabbage salad recipe. This salad is made with red cabbage and has a yummy homemade dressing. It also has apples and walnuts for a tasty crunch.

It’s a great side dish for people following different diets like THM, paleo, Whole30, and low-carb. It’s simple to make and super tasty!

I like cabbage in any way. But my favorite is when it’s made into a salad or slaw – it’s just delicious! This is my top choice salad recipe using red cabbage. It’s even better with apples and pecans. I also have tips for making it low-carb and sugar-free – but I do like a little honey in the dressing. You can still make it without honey though.

Ingredients You Need to Make Red Cabbage Salad

This is a list of the ingredients you’ll need for the recipe. It’s like a picture shopping list! Check out the recipe for how much of each ingredient to use.

Ingredients for Red Cabbage Salad: Red cabbage, carrot, apple, walnuts, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, apple juice or more vinegar, honey, mustard (whole grain and smooth), salt, and black pepper.

Cabbage: If you want to cut the cabbage yourself, make sure to slice it thinly. If you’re in a hurry, pre-shredded cabbage from a bag is also a good option.

Apple: If you’re trying to eat fewer carbs, you don’t have to eat an apple. You can also choose a tart apple like Granny Smith instead of a sweet one to have less sugar.

Honey: This makes the dressing thicker, but you can skip it if you want less carbs or are doing the Whole30 diet. Instead, you can use a teaspoon of powdered sweetener that is allowed on your diet.

Mustard: Whole-grain mustard makes the dressing taste good and gives it a nice texture. I also use smooth mustard to make the dressing thicker. If you leave out the honey, be sure to add smooth mustard. Look at the label and make sure the mustard is okay for your eating plan (like Whole30 or paleo).

How to Make Red Cabbage Salad

To make the dressing, mix all the ingredients in a measuring cup. Stir them well until they are completely mixed.

To make the cabbage salad, pour the dressing on top and use your hands to rub it in. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes, or you can put it in the fridge for a few hours if you’re making it ahead of time.

Just before you serve it, put the rest of the stuff into the salad. Taste it and see if it needs more salt, pepper, vinegar, or oil. Adjust it to your liking. Mix all ingredients and then serve.

Tips and Tricks

Don’t forget to massage the cabbage for a better salad! Rubbing it helps make it softer and tastier.

To keep your salad looking fresh, add the apples right before you eat it. This will prevent them from turning brown.

If you’re bringing this to a party or barbecue, make sure to bring a cooler bag too. This will keep it fresh and crisp, as it tends to get soggy when left in the heat for too long.
