  • 14 oz red cabbage (400g) about 5 cups loosely packed shredded cabbage
  • 1 pomegranate
  • 1 large sweet apple or 1.5 medium/small apples
  • 1 cup walnuts (3.5oz/100g)
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • salt and black pepper to taste


  • Cut the red cabbage into thin strips (as thinly as possible). You can also shred it in a food processor but I've found the best way to do it is by hand or on a mandoline.
  • Grate the apple on the large holes of a box grater (skin-on is fine).
  • Remove the seeds from the pomegranate fruit.
  • Toast the nuts on a dry pan until fragrant and lightly browned, take off the pan immediately. (this step is optional).
  • Combine all the salad ingredients, season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Enjoy!


  • This salad taste best after a couple of hours. The cabbage and walnuts will be more soft and the flavors come together beautifully. It's also very good the next day (store it in the fridge).
  • The most important is to cut the cabbage very thinly.
  • Calories count = 1 serving (1/8 of the recipe). This is only an estimate!
