Warmed Red Cabbage Salad with Toasted Walnuts and Goats Cheese
This is a really great salad.
Really, really great.
The melting goat cheese, the toasted walnuts, the apple, the balsamic vinegar. It’s warm, crunchy, rich and sweet.
This is a real treat.
Serve with lamb koftas, beef or chicken kebabs, BBQed pork tenderloin.
