Cabbage Salad with Apples, Pecan, and Cranberries

Sunday, June 12, 2016

This salad is basic fare but very special in its own right, thanks to a well-rounded combination of six key flavors: sweetness from the carrot, maple syrup, and raisins; sourness from the apple and vinegar; saltiness from the celery and salt; bitterness from the cabbage and parsley; astringency from the apple, cabbage, and walnuts; and pungency from the onion and cabbage.
