Ensalada de Repollo Morado y Manzana (Purple Cabbage and Apple Salad)

I’m back after a week of a much needed vacation at the beach and ready to share new and delicious recipes with you guys.

This Purple Cabbage and Apple Salad is one of the many side dishes I was served at family parties when I was growing up. This is a very simple vegetarian recipe that is perfect as a side salad or served up as a burger topping for a delicious and light summer lunch. This salad can be made in advance, making it perfect for picnics. A special thanks to my aunt in Florida who supplied me with the ingredients for the dressing.

Buen provecho!
