Red Cabbage Salad with Pears and Walnuts
Think cabbage salad has to be a slaw? Think again. Thinly sliced cabbage heads make a crunchy alternative to lettuce. This salad should be served as soon as it is made so the cabbage retains its vibrant color. To make pomegranate syrup, simmer 1 cup pomegranate juice with 2 Tbs. sugar and 1 Tbs. lemon juice over medium heat 1 hour, until thick.
1. Whisk together vinegar, oil, pomegranate syrup, and mustard in small bowl. Set aside.
2. Toss together cabbage, pear slices, walnuts, and red onion in serving bowl. Add dressing, and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
