Red Cabbage Salad with Cranberries

Here is a healthy alternative to those calorie laden side dishes on Thanksgiving, red cabbage salad. It has a sweet and sour flavor from agave and vinegar. I added dried cranberries and garnished it with fresh apples. It’s amazingly simple and a  perfect make ahead dish, because it’s so much tastier after marinating in the fridge for a day.

Yield: Serves 4
