Here is a classic marriage: the invigorating color and crunch of red cabbage with the sweetness of grated apples. A touch of allspice complements the familiar flavors. There is an ample dose of fiber and a panoply of phytochemicals, but mostly there is rich, layered flavor.

  • 1/2 tsp. ground allspice
  • 3 cups shredded red cabbage (about 2/3 pound)
  • 2 medium sweet apples, peeled, cored and grated
  • Salt, to taste
