This reminds me of when I had a German neighbor who was very ill and we were taking meals to her. I wanted to make a German meal for her and so did my research. One of the things I made for her was called Rottkohl mit Apfel (or something like that). We are going to love this slaw!

Evelyne CulturEatz 5/1/17 17:30

I do like slaws and this one looks very festive still with great touches. yumm pine nuts! Happy New Year again!

Susan 5/1/17 18:01

Anything with cranberries is my favorite and I'm sure to make this lovely, healthy salad. Happy New Year, dear friend, XOXO

Ashley@CookNourishBliss 5/1/17 18:24

Oh I love slaw like this that doesn't have a super heavy dressing! Sounds wonderful! Happy 2017!!

Cheri Savory Spoon 5/1/17 19:05

Hi Angie, what a delicious salad you have created and the color is amazing. It's salads like this that I can make a big batch of and eat off and on all day. Take care!

Adina 5/1/17 20:47

I love red cabbage, but I don't think I have ever made it as salad, it is usually stewed as a side dish or with chicken. I will keep this in mind, it is a great idea for a winter salad.

Anu - My Ginger Garlic Kitchen 5/1/17 23:20

Oh my gosh. This is one of the prettiest looking slaw I have ever seen, Angie. This looks super delicious and all those awesome flavors are making me drool.

Tania | My Kitchen Stories 6/1/17 02:10

Hi Angie. I love the colour of this salad. It is the perfect recipe for us at the moment. The addition of pinenuts really takes my fancy!

Abbe@This is How I Cook 6/1/17 05:58

Love the sound of this! Cole slaw is a favorite of mine and this makes my list of things to try!

Anne@ASaladForAllSeasons 6/1/17 06:34

Gorgeous, gorgeous salad, Angie! I love cabbage salads and slaws (actually..cabbage in any form!). But this looks beautiful and refreshing. Love the tangy cranberries and crunchy pomegranate seeds. This would make a lovely side for a Christmas dinner!

I've never had raw leeks in a salad; I bet they are mild and delicious. The pine nuts add a great crunch

I like the crunch you added with the pomegranate seeds and pine nuts…the slaw sounds great.

Cook With Manali 9/1/17 15:42

refreshing flavors! sounds good Angie!

Eva Taylor 9/1/17 15:59

What a coincidence, Angie, I just made a simple red cabbage slaw for dinner last night. Mine didn't have the fancy inclusions as yours does but it was so tasty; I just used green onions and dill and for the dressing, I just heated some plain white vinegar with unsweetened apple sauce - we're watching our sugar intake). I just love the colour of your salad, it would really cheer me up on such a gloomy day.

Jeanette | Jeanette's Healthy Living 9/1/17 22:04

I love the sweet and tangy flavors in your slaw - so pretty and the crunchy pine nuts are the perfect touch!

Pamela @ Brooklyn Farm Girl 9/1/17 22:31

Velva 10/1/17 02:37

Cabbage is peaking in the garden this time of year! I am always looking for ideas with cabbage in the winter. Thanks for sharing.


Marcelle @ A Little Fish in the Kitchen 10/1/17 04:02

Bought a red cabbage and used half to braise with pork. I used the other half in this recipe. Boy, was this GOOD. Better than I thought it would be. Zomick's

Hema 10/1/17 17:59
