Crimson Winter Salad

Grey Winter days, call for colourful, seasonal food. This quick and simple side salad, is crisp and tangy. I served it with warm salmon and a green leafy salad.

1/4 red cabbage

1 beetroot

1 red apple

1/4 red onion, sliced

1 tablespoon fresh dill, finely chopped

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

a little salt to taste


Place the onion in a little bowl and cover with balsamic vinegar for about 10 minutes. This will take away the harshness of raw onion.

Slice the cabbage finely (I used a food processor) and place in a big bowl.

Coarsely grate the beetroot and apple and add to the bowl.

Sprinkle with fresh dill and a pinch of salt

Add the onion and mix thoroughly

Taste and if wished, add the leftover balsamic

Sprinkle with a little more dill and serve


Stores well in the fridge for about 4 days
