This German-inspired red cabbage salad is made up of a delicious combination of cabbage, apples and caraway seeds, all tossed with a tangy vinaigrette dressing.

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 crisp, sweet apple cut into matchsticks
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
