Red Cabbage Salad with Cranberries


This salad is best when made the day before, so it is also a perfect make ahead dish. Once this salad marinates overnight, the cabbage will be a bit softer, and the dried cranberries will plump. I used agave nectar in this salad, but you can substitute it for honey. Roasted walnuts or pecans would also be a good garnish for this salad with the freshly sliced apples.
