Apple Cranberry Cabbage Salad {Packed Lunch Edition}

Apple Cranberry Cabbage Salad  Dinner of Herbs

Apples and cranberries go well together.

Apples and red cabbage [evidently] go well together.

So, if this were math class, I think we would know for sure that cranberries and red cabbage go well together.  Unfortunately and fortunately, cooking is not a math class.  However, my mathematical calculations added up to success this time!

Peppery cabbage, slightly sweet-yet-tart apple, and sweet dried cranberries created an enjoyable salad.  Tossing the apple pieces in a little lemon juice before adding them to the salad prevented any browning, and everything was nice and crisp at lunchtime the next day.

I did give amounts for the ingredients this time, but only as guidelines.  If you are a person that is used to dressing on all salads, then you might want to increase the amount of apple.  The juicy apple satisfied my dressing needs, but everyone is different.

The Recipe

Ingredients

1/6 small red cabbage, chopped

1 small carrot, peeled and julienned

1/2 medium apple, diced

lemon juice

2 tsp dried cranberries

Serving: 1 side salad

Toss the diced apple in a little lemon juice in a bowl to coat.  Combine all the ingredients in a container, and enjoy!
