    Angela Hartnett's Red Cabbage & Apple Salad Recipe

    Most people serve braised red cabbage on Christmas Day but
    I prefer the crisp crunch of a salad to cut through all the richness. Plus, it can be made the night before.

    Angela Hartnett is chef-proprietor of Murano and Café Murano in London

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 15 minutes, plus marinating
    • Total time: 15 minutes, plus marinating

    Serves: 6


    1 small red cabbage (about 750g), core discarded and finely shredded

    1 red onion, finely sliced

    2 tbsp red wine vinegar

    splash balsamic vinegar

    100ml extra virgin olive oil

    2 tsp dijon mustard

    2 red eating apples, halved, cored and finely sliced

    25g pack flat leaf parsley, stalks finely chopped and leaves roughly chopped

    50g walnut halves, roughly chopped


    1 Put the red cabbage and onion in a large bowl, season generously and toss with the red wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil and mustard. Cover the bowl with cling film and leave to marinate for at least 6 hours, preferably overnight.
