Red cabbage, apple, pomegranate and walnut salad

Delicious, crunchy, sweet and sour salad. It looks beautiful on the table, just look at these colors! It‘s a great side dish, serve it for example with roasted whole duck or chicken. Its taste will delight you! All ingredients go extremely well together – sweet red cabbage and apple, sweet and sour pomegranate, crunchy walnuts and a very good sauce (combination of good olive oil, red wine vinegar and lemon juice).

It’s worth to leave the slaw for a minimum 1 hour, and better for 2-3 hours, to allow the tastes to come together and the red cabbage to soften.
