DELICIOUS

Description

I have always been a huge fan of cabbage salad. My mom makes the traditional kind with white cabbage, carrots and orange juice. But I love red cabbage and the gorgeous color it adds to the slaw.

I love the fresh note the dill adds and this salad is influenced by my love of tzatziki (a Greek yogurt dip with dill and cucumbers).

The tart green apples balance out the sweet and chewy dried apricots. It’s bright and gorgeous and so healthy, so you can enjoy bowl after bowl of deliciousness
